West Dundee Halloween Party ~ Trunk or Treat

The Village of West Dundee Community Halloween Party typically takes place on a Saturday in late October from 12:00 to 3:00 at Grafelman Park in West Dundee.

We are looking for businesses that would like to sponsor the 2022 Halloween Party. Last year, we had over 1000 participants for our 3 Hour event. It is great local exposure and a great event.

Our only charge to families is a donation to the F.I.S.H. Food Pantry!

2022 Annual Awards Dinner & Gala

You’re Invited!

The Northern Kane County Chamber of Commerce (NKCCC) Annual Dinner is Saturday October 1, 2022, at the Holiday Inn, Elgin! (Scroll down to register on-line)

The NKCCC has been serving the businesses in the communities of Carpentersville, East Dundee, Gilberts, Sleepy Hollow and West Dundee for more than 40 years and continues to work hard to provide essential services and information.

The past few years has challenged the chamber, our businesses, communities, and ourselves. When circumstances arise that can negatively affect any of us, the chamber quickly goes into action providing resources, information, and support for those impacted.  We have been able to do this because we have strong leadership and communication. Our Board, Ambassadors, volunteers, and staff believe in the mission of the chamber and our members know the value of NKCC. The chamber is an essential organization.

As we continue to navigate the changing environment we are faced with, I passionately believe, strong businesses make strong communities. We will continue to work with area service organizations and clubs to clean up our community and keep it a great place to live. We genuinely believe that when we all work together, we all win by making the Northern Kane County region a wonderful place to live, shop and do business!

As we reflect on our NKCCC accomplishments, we are proud and humbled to celebrate another year of public service. We look forward to, and hope you will join us for the 2022 Annual Awards Dinner where we will honor and recognize our business and community members.

Please take a moment to vote for this year’s nominees!

Our annual fundraising is essential to continue our work and we are seeking sponsorships and donations for our online auction in connection with our dinner so that the NKCCC can continue to fulfill the needs of our community.
