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!



Summer Nears

Springtime in the Delta is grand, but the summer is heading this way. It will be time to slow down and stay cool all too soon. But meanwhile, the town is active!

A morning downpour didn't stop Main Street Blytheville from hosting its annual Mayfest in historic downtown. The wind was mighty (actually turning the Chamber's tent into a parachute of sorts!) but booth-goers enjoyed all variety of fare. On the food front alone, one could enjoy anything from a whole turkey leg to a fried Twinkie.  Main Street is also hosting morning walks, a way of  getting more people downtown to puruse the unique shops and architecture Blytheville brings.

The Chamber of Commerce has a major luncheon event planned at the Holiday Inn on May 18, when the program will focus on the premier program of the Chamber, Blytheville Leadership Institute.  As a bonus, past BLI classes can take this opportunity to come together for a bit of a reunion.  Over 27 years with the program, the Chamber has delivered community leadership awareness to over 650 people.

The first event of the summer will be the Chamber 5K Color Fun Run--it's at the Arkansas Aeroplex and it promises to be wonderful fun for family and friends.  For $25, each runner (or walker) is registered; at 8 a.m. the running begins through a near perfect route, peppered with "color throwers!"  Local school colors will be featured, and by the end of the run, everyone will be spattered and brilliant with paint powder.

Life in a small town brings many joyful moments, so get out and take part! We get what we give!
