Ribbon-Cutting Ceremonies

Celebrate your grand opening, a milestone anniversary, groundbreaking, or other special business occasions! The Manistee Area Chamber of Commerce will assist in setting up a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony (during normal business hours Monday - Friday).

The Chamber will provide the following services to Chamber Investors prior to the event:

  • Create a Facebook event and add your business as a co-host
