Chamber Banquet to Return to Pittsburg State University Campus


Following an incredible 2020 Chamber Banquet under the stars at Kansas Crossing Casino, the chamber is proud to announce that its signature annual event is returning indoors to the Overman Student Center at Pittsburg State University. The 2021 Chamber Banquet will be held on Thursday, May 20, with doors to open at 6:30 p.m. and the program to begin at 7 p.m.

The chamber and its supporters will recognize a number of individuals and organizations that have gone above and beyond for the betterment of our community. The Spirit of Pittsburg, Small Business of the Year, Educator of the Year and many other awards will be presented over the course of the evening. The theme of this year’s banquet will be “the Roaring 20s.”

Attendees will observe the university’s pandemic protocol, including social distancing, facemasks and other precautions. Watch your Chamber Connection for a full list of expectations related to pandemic precautions.

Event and table sponsorships are being secured this week, with general admission tickets to go on sale next Monday, April 12. For more information, call Julie Reams at 231-1000 ext. 2, or email

The chamber would like to thank Pittsburg State University for their help in coordinating this year’s event!
