Description: This is a twist on the Chamber’s most popular networking event, BAH! The Block Party is
a Business After Hours event hosted by multiple chamber members within close
proximity of one another. It is a non-structured evening occasion which provides the
perfect opportunity for our small businesses to showcase their facilities, programs,
products, and services. By working in conjunction with your neighbors, you bring a wide
range of business and community leaders together in this great networking environment.
Sponsorship fee: No charge! We do ask that you help us offer the benefits of Chamber membership to your associates by recruiting at least one new member. Membership applications and information will be supplied to you. Everyone deserves the opportunity to join the Pierce County Chamber of Commerce!
