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!



A Farmer's Market and More

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. 

Main Street Blytheville, now recovered from hosting its annual Mayfest in historic downtown, is offering two exciting new programs for the community and visitors alike. Last Saturday mornings will feature a variety of activities from art viewing to sales events at the boutiques, and on every Saturday, the Farmer's Market will be held at the historic Greyhound Bus Station. 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 the monthly luncheon event planned at the Holiday Inn on June 22, when the program will focus on the history of the area. Michelle Rathgaber from the U of A Archeology Station will elaborate on the findings and their significance in the pre-Colombian era--just one more take on the rich history of Mississippi County, Arkansas!

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!
