Annual Community Engagement Events

Since we are member funded, our fundraisers create a baseline of funding for member advocacy, education and business development. Every fundraiser partners with a local nonprofit to earn a portion of the proceeds benefitting the greater community.

The Coolest Dog Contest is a fundraiser held in March for the Estes Chamber Foundation to support local business education and leadership development. Every fundraiser benefits a local nonprofit. The 2022 nonprofit partner will be announced in February.

Here's how it works. You enter your dog for $10 and get all your friends and family to vote. The winning dogs end up with their face on a local craft beverage label in partnership with our local breweries and Snowy Peaks Winery. All month long, bring your dog to:

  • Weekly Happy Hour
  • Puppy Pageant at Performance Park
  • Dog Wash days at Estes Park Pet Supply

Held at the Estes Park 18-Hole Golf Course, the event features spectacular views as the local community gathers together for an afternoon of golf benefitting business development in Estes Park. Our theme is keeping local spending dollars in Estes, starting with a taste of Estes on the green -- the most amazing hole sponsorships you've ever seen.

Every year we partner with a local nonprofit to share in the day's work to produce the event and share in the proceeds. The application process for nonprofit partnerships will be announced in January 2022.

Get ready to put together a team or sponsor a hole and showcase what you have to offer.

Debuting in 2022, the Chamber will host a black tie gala and casino night, complete with all the games, live music and a live auction. This is not your average auction -- we have everything from local experiences to luxury vacations, artisan gift items to major art. Watch the calendar and save the date.

Proceeds will benefit Chamber advocacy efforts, including government advocacy, participation in legislative action groups and creating grant resources for business funding. As always, we will choose a nonprofit partner to share in the production and the proceeds.  Applications for nonprofit partnerships will be available in January 2022.
