About The Chamber

The Grant Park Chamber of Commerce is organized to advance the general welfare and prosperity of Grant Park so that its citizens and all areas of its business community shall prosper. All necessary means of promotion shall be provided and particular attention and emphasis shall be given to the economic civic, commercial, cultural, industrial, and educational interests of the area.

The Chamber sponsors several events throughout the year, including Dixie Highway Flower Bed clean-up and the Chamber Vendor Even in December.  The Chamber also provides a scholarship for four Grant Park High School graduates each year who will be attending College or a  recognized trade school.  

Any person, association, or business having an interest in improving Grant Park is invited to join the Chamber.  Please fill out the application and return it with your dues payment to the Chamber.  In 2021 we added a PayPal account so that dues and donations can be entered online.  Our email address is grantparkchamber@gmail.com

Note: Effective July 1, 2016, member restaurants or other members who wish to cater a meal at a regular membership meeting, may provide that meal as payment of their annual membership dues.
