Don't miss the 27th annual San Rafael Chamber of Commerce Business Showcase! This award-winning business expo is the best way to get directly in front of local residents, other business owners, neighbors and friends in the community!

This year's event takes place on Wednesday, September 9 from 4:00-7:00pm at the Peacock Gap Clubhouse in San Rafael. Due to the event's popularity and success, we moved to a new venue that offers more exhibitor space, lots of parking and the ability to host a larger audience.

Also, in our continued efforts to bring you quality events that help you gain the greatest exposure to the Marin community at large and to interact with a variety of local businesses, the San Rafael Chamber is proud to announce our partnership with both the Sausalito and Novato Chamber of Commerce.

Sponsorships are available for additional business exposure!
