Each year during Small Business Week, the Hampton Area Chamber of Commerce asks the community to nominate local businesses that they have recognized throughout the year for going above and beyond. The Small Business Awards and all the nominations we receive for the outstanding businesses in our community gives us the opportunity to celebrate the entrepreneurs who contribute so much to the community. They provide local jobs, bring energy, vibrancy and uniqueness to our streets, and they form the backbone of our provincial economy.
Our Small Business Week Awards Night will be held on Thursday, October 19th from 6 to 8 PM at the Hampton Golf Club. This event is free to attend for all members & a guest. This year, we will also be offering non-member tickets for $25. Ticket includes a sampling of food & beverages provided by a variety of local vendors. Purchase your tickets HERE
