Events

The Fort Loramie Chamber of Commerce sponsors the following events:

German Heritage Days

This two-day event in September celebrates the German heritage of the residents of Fort Loramie. Featuring an authentic German polka band, German beer and food, good-natured competitions (beer barrel race, bean bag tournament, beer tray relay), as well German costume contests, this event brings our small community together under the big tent in Canal Park.   

Business Expo

Held every two to three years, the Expo provides a venue for all Chamber members to promote their business or organization. This event draws local and area residents as well as surrounding area businesses and community organizations that come to learn more about opportunities in this growing community. There is no charge to participate, but booth space is reserved on a first-come, first-served basis as long as membership dues are current.

Family Christmas

The Chamber Family Christmas takes place each December in the Village to herald the arrival of Santa and celebrate the Christmas Season. The Historical Museum, decorated for the season, has train and doll displays for the children.

Annual Social Golf Outing

This event is held each June at Arrowhead Golf Club for all Chamber members. Members are encouraged to register teams for a not-very-serious competition. This is an opportunity for members to enjoy a fun afternoon on the course. A box lunch is provided, and participants gather in the Club House for the Awards Ceremony after the outing. Prizes are awarded for best and worst team scores, and special team competitions.

Chamber/Village Christmas Party

Co-sponsored by the Chamber and the Village, the annual Christmas party gives member businesses and organizations and village employees an opportunity to celebrate the Christmas holiday with food, drink, and camaraderie.
