Hay Day

Each year the Chamber Sponsors Hay Day in Rock Valley that is put on by the Rock Valley Hay Auction. Sellers bring hay to town for auction and the hay is displayed around town including up and down Main Street. It is a sight to be seen by all and brings a lot of people to town each year.

Boys and Girls Basketball Tournaments

Every February or March the Rock Valley Chamber of Commerce sponsors Boys and Girls BB tournaments. The tournaments have grown considerably over the last couple of years and are thought of as one of the top tournaments offered in the area. This brings a lot of people to the community and benefits the Rock Valley Business Community and Chamber of Commerce immensely.

“Sweet on Life” Tractor Pull

Usually happens in late May/the end of May and is hosted on the Hay Auction Area.

Christmas Activities and Promotions

Each year the Chamber sponsors an annual six week Christmas promotion that is full of activities. Festival of trees, Santa Clause, Dances, store sales, sleigh rides, and Bonus Buck giveaways are a few of the activities offered to the community.

Annual Bonus Bucks Promotion

Each year we offer Bonus Bucks that can be purchased by individuals or businesses and the bucks can be spent at any Chamber Member Business in Rock Valley. This is a great gift idea for a lot of people.

Rock Valley Career Day

Every other year the Chamber Sponsors Rock Valley Career Day that is put on by Rock Valley Economic Development. This gives the students of Rock Valley the opportunity to see the opportunities that the business community of Rock Valley has to offer before going off to college.
