Annual Events & Fundraisers
The Estes Chamber of Commerce hosts several annual events connecting the Estes business community. Since we are member funded, we rely on three annual fundraisers to create a baseline of operations funding through the Chamber Foundation.
The Coolest Dog Contest is a fundraiser held in March for the Estes Chamber Foundation to support the local business community and another beneficiary. The winning dogs end up with their face on a local craft beverage label.
The month is packed full of events to bring the community together to support our dogs. Events include:
- Bring your dog to Happy Hour
- Puppy Pageant
- Partnerships with local businesses for discounts
Annual Golf Tournament
Held at the Estes Park 18-Hole Golf Course, the event features spectacular views as the local business community gathers together for an afternoon of golf.
The event features an auction benefiting the Estes Chamber Foundation, which directly supports the business community.
The event concludes with awards for the golf teams and a celebratory dinner.
Annual Fall Event, celebrating successful summer season! As a business community, tourism directly or indirectly touches every industry, so we gather together to celebrate a successful season, acknowledging the achievements of the community.
