How To Host A Business After Hours 

Bring the High Country business community through your doors by hosting a Business After Hours.

Applications are solicited from interested hosts from October 1st through 4:30 pm on October 31st. 

If selected, businesses are required to pay a $150-dollar non-refundable deposit at the time of contract to secure the date. The host business must have adequate parking and provide food and beverage for an average of 75-100 attendees. The Chamber staff will use the deposit money to advertise the event to the business community. Multiple businesses may partner to host an event, providing the venue meets the host requirements.
