The Tri-Cities Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (TCHCC) is organized for the purpose of advancing the economic, industrial, professional, cultural, agricultural, educational and civic welfare of the Tri-Cities and surrounding communities. The TCHCC will accomplish this mission by focusing on work force development through its support of education and training


The Mariachi and More Festival is a free, cultural event that highlights the rich cultural resources we have in our community. The Chamber also builds community through the welcoming environment at all of our luncheons and evening events. Nobody is a stranger at the Chamber; all are warmly welcomed and meet new friends.


It is a common misconception that you need to be Hispanic or have someone Hispanic on staff to be part of the Hispanic Chamber. All are welcome! In fact, one of our main purposes is to connect businesses of all backgrounds.


We want to grow with and for the Tri-Cities areas. We host a series of events to help teach the importance of business outreach, community collaboration and cultural growth.
