Chamber Member Holiday Open House
We so enjoyed hosting the Chamber Holiday Open House for our wonderful Members! Members gathered for homemade soup and a variety of delicious treats, and a time to catch up with their fellow business people.
Special thanks to the ladies who brought soup (we had six to choose from!) and hard working volunteers!
A Good Way to Start the Season!
The Chamber wishes to thank all who helped make the Holiday Craft Bazaar and Light Up the Night not only possible, but a good time for all!
The Holiday Craft Bazaar saw approximately 500 shoppers over both days, while Light Up the Night drew an estimated 600 - 800 people downtown. None of this would have been possible without the hard work of a number of individuals volunteering their time and talents - Thank you!
Thank you to the Belle Fourche community for turning out and supporting these events!

Manufacturers Day & Industrial Rail Park Dedication
Afterwards, Permian Tank gave the first Manufacturing Day tour through their vast facility, followed by tours of Ring Container, New Generation Feeds, Design Tanks, and Gillette Fence. Those on the tours enjoyed learning about these local manufacturers and expressed amazement at the scope of operations happening in 'little' Belle Fourche.

WELCOME to BELLE FOURCHE (W2BF)!
Our 2016 Campaign focuses on welcoming visitors to Belle Fourche in a way we haven't done before. Belle Fourche is the FIRST stop on the way to all the attractions the Black Hills of South Dakota has to offer and the LAST stop on the way back home.

From the Director...
Get Ready for Winterfest!
Dear Chamber Members:
The New Year starts with a New Event from the Chamber of Commerce.
The success of Fall Flavors inspired us to plan for a similar event after the New Year.
These seasonal events are designed to create a structure within which you, Chamber businesses, can plan your events and coordinate with other businesses in the community that are doing similar promotions. We believe that community wide events give more drive to everyone’s individual efforts.
To help you promote business during these colder months, the Chamber has marked January and February as “WINTERFEST”. Across the city and in our businesses there will be events designed to take away people’s “cabin fever” and get them out, active, having fun and doing business in Belle Fourche.
The Winterfest committee has been brainstorming events that you the businesses might like to sponsor. We have quite a list and want to encourage you to call the Chamber for more details. The office will be glad to visit with you about opportunities to chase away ‘cabin fever’ and get customers into your business. And if something on our list doesn’t quite fit the bill, we welcome your ideas as well.
Events will be advertised on the Chamber’s social media sites as well as in print, and we will be available to help promote your event.
Give us a call and we can talk about what might work for your business. The sooner the better as we want to take advantage of early advertising. Our first advertising of events will go out on December 30th, 2016 and Winterfest begins early January.
Executive Chamber Director
