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!



And forward we go

A grand summer in many ways, people of the Delta are beginning to look forward to cooler weather.  Football season is beginning, with much cheering for the Pirates, the Chicks, the Red Wolves and the Razorbacks. Blytheville is devoted to football--a true southern trait.

Join us this fall for a number of events.  The Chamber Front Porch Party this fall (October 15) precedes the annual Chili Cook-off, sponsored by Main Street Blytheville. On the porch, we'll be doing a big tailgate with all the usual fare and perhaps the unusual as well. But we won't be serving chili. No. We want everyone to  get their fill of chili on October 17 when historic downtown Blytheville is overtaken by dozens of teams making all sorts of chili. Block off those days now--come enjoy fall festivities.

The Chamber is also sponsoring an important program this year, as we become one of many cities in the country to celebrate "National Night Out."  This is a day--October 6--when America is asked to turn on their porch lights, their lawn lights and all outdoor lighting in an effort to light up against crime. The local program, "Light Up Blytheville," has already started. The Chamber is at work getting streetlights working, and asking members to update their own outdoor lighting where needed.  An educational program will be included, and altogether, the Chamber hopes to build awareness that light helps build safer communities. 

Those are just a few of the great community programs in our little town--Join us! Participate! You will be glad you did!
