Welcome to the Huron Chamber of Commerce!

" To strengthen our membership and our community, enabling them to grow and prosper"


The Huron Chamber of Commerce is a vital and supporting link for our businesses, encouraging involvement and networking in our local Community. Through an assortment of events and committee project opportunities, you and your company will work hand in hand with other respected business leaders.




Due to circumstances beyond our control, we have determined that it would be in the Chamber’s best interest to not hold the 2014 Taste of Wine, Roses, Tapas & Beer, scheduled for Thursday, June 26. Lack of participation, scheduling conflicts and marketing challenges have converged in a Perfect Storm of circumstances that have led to this tough decision.


The Barnes family, as always, was very gracious In agreeing with our decision and have assured us that they will assist us in regrouping, forming a committee to help us deal with these issues and working together, we’ll go forward with planning a bigger and better event for 2015.
