We have met with the city of McHenry to determine a safe and fun way to continue a portion of our Fiesta Days festivities. We are pleased to announce that we will have a modified version of our Arts and Crafts in the Park.

Instead of a parade this year, we will offer the option for businesses to have a booth at Miller Point in our event called "Fair on the Point". Similar to an expo, this will provide businesses the opportunity to demonstrate their products and services while also handing out goodies and promotional items.

We will space the booths to provide safe physical distancing and we will also provide preventative measures (such as hand sanitizing stations and goody bags for participants to limit contact).

If your business would like to participate in Fair on the Point, please fill out the online registration form or call the Chamber office at 815-385-4300. For sponsorship opportunities, see below.
Guest speaker Stephanie Conley will speak about new accounting practices for small businesses in a COVID world
This session will review which benefits you are currently using and suggestions on how to make the most of your membership
