Ribbon Cuttings

As a celebration of growth in the Upcounty business community, the Chamber conducts, upon request, ribbon cutting ceremonies for member businesses opening, expanding, moving to a new location, or celebrating important milestones.

Ribbon cutting events hosted in partnership with the GGCC include a GGCC calendar post, social event posts, invitations to local elected officials and business leaders, who will often bring official citations or proclamations to present to the business, supplies such as giant scissors and the wide red ribbon, biodegradable confetti (if outdoors), event facilitation, and social posts congratulating the business after the event with photos.  Additional services, such as decorations, entertainment, and catering can be arranged with member businesses.


  • Ribbon cuttings must be scheduled at least 6 weeks in advance, and are held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays mid-day.
  • GGCC will try our best to schedule only 1 ribbon cutting event per week.
  • While ribbon cutting events are included as a courtesy to members, date changes may incur an additional fee of $350 to compensate for staff planning time. Please be assured of your opening date before scheduling your big event – we want it to be great for you!  And if you are experiencing delays due to permitting or inspections, please let us know. We can try to help!
  • If you are an in-home business, you may schedule your ribbon cutting at the Chamber office with no rental charge, or at a third-party GGCC-member venue. Please note that we will not conduct a ribbon cutting at a non-member venue.
