• Ribbon Cuttings

    The Oak Park-River Forest Chamber of Commerce coordinates ribbon-cutting ceremonies on behalf of its members who are celebrating a grand opening, a major renovation, an expansion, or a significant anniversary.  Ribbon cuttings generally take place on Fridays from 11:30 am - noon, and provide an opportunity to welcome and connect with a new business, network with other attendees, and celebrate our growing business community. 

    The Chamber honors businesses hosting ribbon cuttings with event photos on Facebook, and for 2018 will establish a premium package which includes a half-page ad in the Wednesday Journal.  Members at the Standard membership level and up are eligible for one ribbon cutting per year, given an appropriate occasion for the ceremony.
