Welcome to the Greater Blytheville Area Chamber of Commerce

Welcome to Blytheville, Arkansas and the Greater Blytheville Area Chamber of Commerce. Often called the “gateway to the Arkansas Delta,” Blytheville combines the charms of small-town living with the accessibility of big city amenities, which are a mere hour away! 

The historic downtown area offers boutique shopping, along with clothing stores, books, shoes and great bargains.  All around town, you can enjoy superb accommodations at award-winning hotels.  Fine food is abundant, from our classic pork barbeque to ethnic delights and gourmet dining.

Steel-making and cotton-growing are two professions held in high esteem in this northeast corner of Arkansas. As the second leading steel producer in the nation, the area also is among leading agricultural producers for cotton and soy beans.

And the best thing: Everywhere you go, you can  expect a level of friendliness and warmth that only true Southern hospitality can offer.

Travel our site. We are here to help you find whatever you need and we would love to have you stop by for a visit!

Fall Events / Elections

It is a hot political year everywhere, but one issue facing Arkansas voters is known as Issue 3--an amendment to the state constitution. The Chamber of Commerce board has endorsed this issue, one that will, among other things, lift restrictions on funding of industrial development incentives. Arkansas, which caps even the legislature's spending authority on manufacturing growth incentives, find itself compromised in a highly competitive market for large manufacturing facilities. We need jobs. We need growth.  Vote YES to Issue 3.

In other news, events begin to flood the city as fall football--Razorbacks, Red Wolves, Chickasaws and Pirates--dominate both conversation and activity. The Chamber kicks off a big fall weekend with the annual Tailgate & Tamales Front Porch Party on Thursday, October 13,  Chickasaw homecoming is the 14th, with a Blytheville High School Parade scheduled at 4:30 before the game. Saturday, October 15, Main Street Blytheville hosts the Annual Chili Cook-off, a grand street festival with lots of, what else? Chili!  All sorts of vendors and family fun round out the day, all on historic Main Street.

Christmas is around the corner too. Wow. Start shopping now, but focus that effort on shopping in Blytheville. Our business owners are friendly, knowledgeable and good citizens. So let's make Christmas a citizen-to-citizen thing!
