About the Chamber
Our primary objective is to make this area an even better place to live, work and play. Part of the Chamber’s mission is to be a community leader and assist in the economic development of the region. We do that through service, innovation, community leadership and collaboration.
The Little River Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center works closely with the local government and elected leadership of Horry County. This close working relationship ensures that the business climate at the community level remains positive and supportive for quality sustainable growth and a thriving economy.
The Little River Chamber of Commerce also represents our members for state and national issues and works with both the US Chamber of Commerce and the SC State Chamber to lobby for our local concerns to ensure they are on the state and national radar.
As there is no local municipality, the Little River Chamber of Commerce has taken the initiative to fund local necessities, such as: maintaining the medians on Hwy 17, maintaining streetlights on Hwy 17 & Mineola Ave, maintaining area welcome signs, worked closely with Horry County to provide a free public parking lot, and more. Learn more on our Reinvestments page.
The Little River Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center currently manages two large festivals that promote tourism and provide a fun distraction for locals. These festivals also create a combined $4.25 Million economic impact for our area.
The World Famous Blue Crab Festival and Little River ShrimpFest exemplify how a community can come together to showcase their love for their home. Both festivals are primarily staffed by volunteers and sponsored by a variety of local businesses who want to display their community and put on a great event for both locals and visitors alike to enjoy.
