Fruita Area Chamber of Commerce

Welcome to the Fruita Area Chamber of Commerce, where your business is our business! When you join FACC, you join a force- a support system of resources, information, and connections. Together we’ll build a strong community and help businesses thrive.

Our Chamber hosts regular networking opportunities for members including two weekly lunch groups, a monthly Business After Hours, and the Women in Business networking group! We regularly offer enhanced visibility opportunities through our media partnerships, sponsorships, and member advertising on our website and within email communications. Please reach out to our staff to ensure you’re making the most of your membership. 

The Fruita Area Chamber is invested in our local community. We organize various community events including Fruita Fall Festival, Fruita Farmers Market, Trick or Treat Street, and the Parade of Lights. The Chamber also gives back to our community through annual scholarships available to high school seniors living in Fruita.
