Office Hours: Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
We invite you to take a few minutes to learn more about us. The Wickenburg Chamber is committed to enhancing the town’s quality of life through numerous programs. The Chamber attempts to fulfill its mission through the efficient running of various committees, including film, education, tourism, transportation, community development, governmental affairs, and special events.
Chamber membership has many benefits. Members gain exposure through the Chamber’s membership directory, monthly Business after Hours Mixers, participation in committee activities, and by attending the numerous seminars and quarterly luncheon meetings. Members are informed of Chamber activities through a monthly e-Blast, the Chamber’s Facebook page, The Hassayampa Alert our monthly newsletter and this website.
Most often, the Chamber is the first contact for visitors, new residents, and businesses coming into the area. Through public relations, the Chamber works closely with the Town of Wickenburg, hospitality members, and regional and state tourism agencies to provide valuable information.
We respond to thousands of telephone calls, letters, email inquiries and walk-in visitors who want relocation and tourism information. Membership in the Chamber offers an opportunity to be part of an organization dedicated to promoting growth and creating an economically sound future for Wickenburg – a great place to live, work, and play!
The people of Wickenburg choose this community not just as a place to live but also as a way of life.
The town, with all the charming features of a typical Western community, nestles in the rich verdure of the Hassayampa River Valley. Surrounded by rugged mountain ranges that break the force of the winds and nourished by an unlimited supply of pure mountain water, this valley offers unique advantages.
During the winter season, the abundant sunshine, aided by gently warm winds, makes the days delightfully temperate. The nights are crisp and so clear that the stars, moon and planets stand out against a blue-black sky. During the summer, mountain breezes from the north generously reduce the daytime temperatures and make the nights cool. The 2,100-foot altitude and clean, dry air are beneficial to those with health problems.
A smiling welcome is in every greeting. Friendliness and the warm spirit of good neighborliness are as evident in Wickenburg as is the inexhaustible supply of sunshine that bathes the region. A visitor meets it at every turn, whether his mission leads him to business contacts with townspeople or to the ranches, where the most hospitable hosts in the world bid welcome.
Western hospitality is no catchpenny phrase here. As befits this truly welcoming town, hospitality and friendliness are a charming part of the town’s personality, as genuine and as real as the surrounding hills. Wickenburg is a town where visitors are warmly welcomed whether the stay is an hour, month, or season. It doesn’t matter where a person is from or who they are – the important thing is that they’re here.
