About Us

Let us work for you!

The River Valley Chamber of Commerce is an organization of business and civic leaders that works to promote its members and their services, and to provide a voice for the interest of area businesses. Through partnerships with others, the Chamber seeks to promote economic growth, job creation and retention, tourism, civic pride, and cultural awareness.

The River Valley Chamber of Commerce invites you to explore the River Valley. We are nestled in the mountains of Western Maine where we pride ourselves in being a four-season destination. Within our ten-town community area, you will find many interesting shops, places of interest as well as historic sites, beautiful lakes and mountains and small town country charm and hospitality. The River Valley has everything you are looking for. From hiking, biking and camping in the lush green forests to skiing, snowmobiling or ATVing on our endless scenic trails. Surrounded by the Appalachian Mountains and clear blue rivers and lakes, these ten towns have something very special to offer. Whether you are planning on passing through or sitting a spell we hope that you will make us your future vacation destination!
