The Baraga County Chamber of Commerce promotes the general welfare and prosperity of the business community and all of the citizens who have made Baraga County, Michigan their home. We’re committed to promoting the vital interests of our stakeholders, with a special emphasis on the economic, commercial, civic, cultural, industrial and educational areas that matter most.
In 2022, our brand evolved to become Keweenaw Bay and Beyond as a means to better reflect the experience we deliver every day. Keweenaw Bay not only serves as a geographic reference point within our state, but also a state of mind. One that reminds us of the important role the Great Outdoors plays in everyday life here. Counties are defined by invisible borders, but Keweenaw Bay and Beyond is defined by the unlimited opportunities that await those who venture here. It’s a place where bright sunrises set the stage for even brighter futures. Where success is measured by one’s growth, personal happiness and prosperity. So come to Keweenaw Bay and Beyond and get ready to experience the extraordinary.
Grow, enhance, and support a vibrant business climate through
leadership, professional development and community involvement.
