Welcome to Hamilton
The Hamilton Area Chamber of Commerce welcomes you to our website and to the beautiful city of Hamilton,
Alabama. Located on I-22 in northwest Alabama, Hamilton is nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian
Mountains in scenic Marion County. We hope you enjoy your visit with us! We have many exciting things
happening in Hamilton, and we would love to share our great city with you!
And what a fantastic community Hamilton is! The area includes tremendous businesses, schools, churches,
industries, sporting activities, and a growing tourism base. What is the strength of Hamilton? The strength
is its people. Hamilton is blessed with a growing number of dedicated volunteers, proactive community leaders,
and caring, responsive, informative civic groups and nonprofit organizations.
The Chamber supports the community with several events throughout the year as a primary or secondary
sponsor: Jerry Brown Arts Festival, National Day of Prayer, Leadercast,
Hamilton Customer Appreciation Day, the Chamber Annual Shrimp Boil, Miss Hamilton Pageant,
Buttahatchee River Fall Fest, The Nutcracker, and Santa on the Square & Hamilton Christmas
Parade. These events are a great way to network, have fun, visit with your neighbors, and promote area
businesses all in one!
In addition to our annual events, the Chamber hosts business-related seminars, ribbon cuttings for new
members, and participates in other events and activities which promote our great city. We provide a
representation at all city council meetings and report to our membership on issues of interest to them.
With multiple renovation and revitalization projects ongoing in our area, Hamilton is poised to soon be a
showplace in northwest Alabama!
We encourage you to be our guests, or even better, become a resident! Shop Hamilton First! Shop, stay,
eat, work, play, and pray in Hamilton! You can do it all!
