News from the Chamber

Bluffton starts Blazing on November 30

The 2019 Bluffton Blaze of Lights Festival is November 30--the Saturday after Thanksgiving!

Join us for a big parade on Main Street from Snider to College Avenue, the town crier reciting the Christmas story, live music, visits with Santa, mini train rides, horse and wagon rides--and turning on the lights of the Ream folk art display!

For more information, follow Bluffton Area Chamber of Commerce on Facebook or visit the Blaze page.

Thank you for a wonderful season!

A HUGE thank you to our Bluffton Farmers Market supporters: shoppers, vendors, Citizens National Bank, Bluffton First Mennonite Church, Bluffton Post Office, and all our neighbors who kindly parked elsewhere!

See you on May 2, 2020 for opening day of our next season!

NEW VENDORS: See our Farmers Market page for information on signing up for 2020.
