SUMMER 2020 - 
It sure isn't going to be the same, considering all that our world has been through the past few months!  But the great news is, many events are still taking place - with a little twist, perhaps, but not necessarily cancelled!  Our Summer Celebration concerts are still on!


SECOND CONCERT - Tuesday, July 28, 2020 - TRENDING:CLASSIC - a local band. Kicks of at 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. downtown Mancelona. Please bring lawn chairs, blankets. We highly recommend bringing and wearing a face mask, but they are not required.  There will be a designated MASK REQUIRED seating section.  


MICHIGAN SMALL BUSINESS RESTART PROGRAM - $100 Million to be awarded to businesses affected by COVID-19. Restrictions apply.  30% of the grant money will be awarded to minority-owned businesses.  Read more at this link.  Applications open July 15, 2020.  $269,534 has been allocated for Antrim County businesses.  



Networks Northwest and the Traverse Transportation Coordinating Initiative (TTCI) are seeking to gather input for a freight plan. It is expected that the results of the 2020 census will see the Traverse City small urban area transition to a Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), which is a federally mandated and funded transportation policy-making organization.  The freight plan will be a part of a future transportation improvement plan. This survey is meant to help with the gathering of challenges and opportunities freight users see, as well as to help identify future goals to improve the ability to move freight. The survey (linked) should take about 10-15 minutes to answer the 10 questions and will remain open until August 3rd, 2020.  


Mancelona Farmers Market is open Thursdays 3:00 p.m. next to the Buck Pole.

See our News & Announcements page for updates on events taking place around the county.

COVID19 - WHERE WE ARE AT, WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT WHEN YOU VISIT ANTRIM COUNTY - Mancelona Chamber of Commerce has teamed up with Antrim County Economic Development Corporation (EDC), local Downtown Development Authorities, and Chambers of Commerce from Elk Rapids, Bellaire, Central Lake, Ellsworth, East Jordan, and the Antrim County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to provide a plan for Antrim County businesses to re-open.  This team wants our visitors and seasonal residents to comfortable coming home, coming north, where they can do businesses at establishments here with confidence, and the reassurance that we are all taking precautions to help stop the spread of Covid19. The group has created the Antrim Promise, a plan with suggestions for the re-opening process, and resources for assistance and obtaining any necessary personal protection equipment (PPE).  

"It is critical at this time that we are all working together, unified in mission," said Jeremy Scott, Antrim County Public Information Officer.  "Each organization brings unique capabilities and perspectives that we need to serve local businesses and find a path to recovery."
