History of Cherry Creek Chamber of Commerce
The Cherry Creek Chamber of Commerce, formerly known as the Cherry Creek Commerce Association, was founded in 1983. Over the years, the Cherry Creek Chamber has played an integral role in bringing business to the Cherry Creek district. The Chamber advocated on behalf of the Taubman Company to ensure that the Cherry Creek Mall was built in 1989 at its current location on Speer Boulevard and Steele Street. According to the City of Denver, the Cherry Creek Mall and Cherry Creek North are one of the top tourist attractions in the state.
In 1990, the Chamber provided a portion of the starting funds to the Cherry Creek Arts Festival to help them kick off their first event. Since that time, the Cherry Creek Arts Festival has turned into the Number One arts festival in the United States drawing more than 300,000 visitors annually to the Cherry Creek area during the July 4th weekend.
During the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, the Taste of Cherry Creek was introduced by the Chamber. The Taste of Cherry Creek was a culinary delight that highlighted the best restaurants in Cherry Creek and helped to benefit local charities.
As the Chamber continued to grow and focus on local business, the Cherry Creek Forum was founded. The Forum is responsible for bringing together community leaders and business representatives on an on-going basis to discuss the issues that face Cherry Creek and the surrounding communities. The goal of the group is to be a proactive voice for our community.
Today, the Cherry Creek Chamber is still dedicated to our local community and our membership. Our goal is to welcome business leaders to the Cherry Creek Experience by providing opportunities for unique connections, professional and personal growth and service to our community.
