  • Membership, Membership, Membership!

    If you missed our 14th Annual BBQ and Blues Festival, you missed a jammin' good time. Not only was the BBQ Competition a huge success, but the Blues Concert was back in a big way. All of our bands for the weekend were phenomenal, but our headliner—"Tribute"—the official Allman Brother's Tribute Band was a soaring hit. So, look towards September and our 45th Annual Buggy Days Festival, since the cat is already out of the bag, as we bring the unbelievable Swingin' Medallions to Ritz Park for a concert like no other!

    Now—the Chamber Staff and Board of Directors are in GO MODE as we will be lacing up and hitting the streets to meet and greet with our local businesses; both with those that have joined and those that have not. We are in the process of creating a short membership survey to asses the needs of our local businesses so that we can better serve our community and our biggest economic drivers—YOU, our Chamber Family! So, get ready, Barnesville, we are on our way to see you. 

    Join the Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with Lamar County Farm Bureau, the Lamar County Soil and Water Conservation District, and 2 Rivers RC&D as we host the Annual May Ag AfterHours Event at the Pippins Farm on Thursday, May 17th from 5:00-7:00!

    As always, be sure to check out our Events Calendar as we will be updating it with the happenings in and around our community!
