Ribbon Cutting & Grand Opening Event Guidelines

Ribbon Cutting & Grand Opening Ceremonies can be scheduled

Monday - Friday from 8:30am - 5:00pm

Wilkes Chamber will provide the ceremonial ribbon and the giant scissors used for cutting

Wilkes Chamber will be present to take photos and or video of your event

  • Please try to schedule your event at least two weeks in advance

  • Determine in advance who will cut the ribbon

  • Be prepared to speak, plan a short speech and be prepared to speak immediately before cutting the ribbon (this is a great time to thank those involved, and to advertise what your business does)

  • Invite everyone you know!  Clients, prospects, friends & family, business neighbors, government officials, local media

  • Food and beverages are not required, but are well received
