Greater Barrington Chamber of Commerce
The Heron Rookery
Formed in 1994 with 50 Charter members, the Greater Barrington Chamber of Commerce is an active partner in the business community. The Chamber is responsible for many outstanding events such as the Peeper 5K Run/Walk held in May which is a USATF sanctioned race; the annual Golf Tournament held in June, and the Chamber BINGO held in September. The Chamber offers annual scholarship awards to graduating high school seniors of Chamber members. And, each year, the Chamber proudly honors our Citizen of the Year and our Business Leader of the Year at the Annual Dinner held in November.

Greater Barrington Chamber Chats
The Chamber television show can be seen monthly on Metrocast Channel 12. This show has three segments, two which are dedicated to interviewing Chamber members, and a third that gives Town officials an opportunity to educate the community about the Town departments. The show will air on Monday at 6 p.m. and Wednesday at 7 p.m., as well as throughout the month at different times. It also offers the viewers the opportunity to learn more about our Chamber, its members, and the Town of Barrington.
