The most important component of our mission statement is identifying the area we serve – Dorchester County. There are many cities, towns and communities throughout the county, each with its own charm, culture and history. It is the sum of these communities which embodies Dorchester County. This is a great time to be in our County, and a strong and growing business community is key to maintaining our momentum.
Positive things are going on throughout the County and the diversity of business in our community is found in very few places around the globe. Events like IRONMAN Maryland and the Power Boat Regatta have made the County visible on an international scale. We have a world class resort attracting multinational corporations and political leaders for conventions, as well as families just looking to relax. Local entrepreneurs have created unique and exciting ways to share the spectacular natural resources found throughout the County. We have strong roots in agriculture and the seafood industry, which are not only key to the economic stability of the county, but also to the culture which makes Dorchester a unique place to live. We have found multiple ways to grow these roots into other thriving businesses: wineries, farm markets that have become destinations, unique livestock, aquaculture, marine sales and service, and many more. We are home to manufacturing facilities shipping products all over the country and the world. Restaurants in every corner of the County are regularly finding ways to stand out from the competition and win awards. Our retail stores offer unique and everyday items for local residents, as well as for the important tourists who come to our community. Please review the Member Directory to see these, and many other, examples of the exciting businesses in Dorchester County.
The Dorchester Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to providing the highest level of service to help Dorchester County reach its peak potential. We want you to join in our effort.
Join us on Sunday, June 2, 2019 at Long Wharf Park for a great day of fun and excitement.
In 2018 the Chamber brought back the exciting sport of Boat Docking Competition to Cambridge. On June 2, 2019 the Second Annual Chamber Challenge Boat Docking Event will be held at Long Wharf Park. This exciting sport has been held at locations throughout the county for years, sponsored by Suicide Bridge Restaurant, Taylors Island Fire Department and Hoopers Island Fire Department. Adding Cambridge back into the circuit is helping to expand this exciting sport and bring more visitors to the county for all the events. Four boat docking events in one County is unprecedented.
