What is the Farmer Merchant Banquet?

Each year in March the Rexburg Area Chamber of Commerce has a Farmer Merchant Banquet to honor the farmers, business people, professionals and the citizens in our community. This year the banquet will be held on Thursday, March 8, 2018 at 6:30 pm at the Madison High School Gymnasium. We have a nice dinner catered, and a silent auction and a live auction as fundraisers.

We ask the businesses in the area to donate items or gift certificates for these auctions. Items donated with a retail value of $500.00 or more go in the Live Auction.  All items with a retail value of less than $500.00 go in the Silent Auction section. It is good advertisement for your company. Last year we sold over 500 tickets to this banquet. We would like very much to put your company name on any donation you could give us. Bring your donation to the chamber office by Friday, February 24, 2017 and your donated item will be listed in the program

Guess what! You can decorate your table again this year to advertise your business!  Any business who sponsors a table for 8 may decorate their table and will have a place card on that table with their business name stating that, “This Table is Sponsored by………..”.  You could make it “Employee Appreciation Night” for your business. Please send us your business logo and we will put it on the other side of the place card.  You may also bring brochures or information about your business to put at the 8 places at your table. You could win the best decorated table and get a trophy to keep in your business for a year and 8 tickets to next years’ banquet.

It is the perfect place to network with new businesses and make connections with potential customers, clients, etc.  Come join in on the FUN!

Proceeds are used to provide equipment and supplies for the chamber office. Items the chamber has purchased with proceeds include a phone system, a copy machine, FAX machine, computers, etc.

Tickets are $30.00 each or $200.00 for a table for 8. For tickets or more information, please call the Rexburg Area Chamber of Commerce at 356-5700.
