The American Canyon Chamber of Commerce is a Champion for a strong American Canyon!
We do this by:
This week long celebration in January highlights our local eateries. The campaign is blasted on our social media pages, posted on exploreamcan.com, and promoted locally in town.
This program highlights one local business every month. It includes a 1 minute video that is shared on our social sites, website and monthly newsletter.
This program is in partnership with the Tourism & Business Improvement District. The goal is to accurately tell American Canyon's story to our visitors. Under this program the Welcome Center produces visitor guides, dining guides, and runs promotional campaigns. Visit exploreamcan.com to check out this robust program!
