The Annual Meeting is held in January each year; this black-tie event includes dinner, entertainment, and silent and live auctions. The Annual Meeting serves as a commemorative year in review. The Chamber also honors the “Citizen of the Year” and “Ambassador of the Year” Awards and the official passing of the gavel from current board chair to the incoming board chair.
The evening begins with cocktails, hors d’ oeuvres, and a silent auction at 6pm. A formal dinner and program follow at 7pm. Reservations are required.
Each year, the Greater Pueblo Chamber of Commerce honors the “Business of the Year” and the “Charles W. Crews” Business Leader of the Year Award recipients at a Greater Pueblo Chamber luncheon. The event is held annually in April. This is an opportunity for members to come together and honor the recipients and celebrate the small business community in Pueblo, Colorado.

This is an opportunity for you to put on some boots, saddle up, and join us for an old-fashioned barbecue as we kick off the Colorado State Fair. The Governor and his cabinet members, the 100 members of the Colorado General Assembly, and our Congressional Delegation are invited to attend as guests each year. The Legislative Barbecue is held at the Colorado State Fairgrounds WeatherPort Tent on the first Friday of the fair.
The Annual Colorado State Fair Parade, themed “A Walk on the Wild Side” set to take place Saturday, August 29th has been cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions. The Colorado State Fair Parade is one of the oldest parades in Colorado and is coordinated by the Greater Pueblo Chamber of Commerce and its State Fair Parade Committee. In all of its years, it has not been cancelled.
“After careful consideration, it is with deep regret that we have to cancel this year’s parade,” says Steve Shirley, Chairman of the State Fair Parade Committee, “but the safety of our community comes first.”
Due to COVID-19 Restrictions:
- Traveling and being in close quarters for bands is prohibited.
- Social distancing would be difficult to maintain with participants on floats, especially high schools with large student representation.
- The parade draws in around 40,000+ spectators and there are not guidelines put in place for outdoor events of this size.
The State Fair Committee was faced with a difficult decision but determined this is the best way to keep our community safe from furthering the impacts of COVID-19 and make way to resume in 2021. For questions or more information, contact Terri Kallish at 719-542-1704 or email@example.com.
