The Cokato Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary association of business people working together to improve the economic and civic vitality in Cokato. Enhancement and beautification projects throughout the city are promoted by the chamber. The chamber has changed the structure of its meetings to integrate more of a networking aspect for its members.
The Cokato Chamber of Commerce promotes the city through many events throughout the year.
The chamber also plans and organizes the DC Expo, which takes place in early spring. The chamber sponsors the annual citywide garage sales in the spring, and plans BooFest, an event encouraging local business to decorate their storefronts for Halloween, and hand out candy to the children of the community from 4 to 5 p.m., on a date to be determined.
Each year, the Cokato Chamber honors an outstanding citizen for his or her work to better the community. In December, the Citizen of the Year award is presented to that individual at a special lunch meeting.
The chamber meets at noon the second Tuesday of each month (except August) on the second level of Cokato City Hall.
