Community Signature Events 2023
The goal of Chamber events is to share Ripon with visitors and friends – welcoming them to experience our lively city and friendly people. While these community “celebrations” take months to plan with help from many Chamber members, each draws hundreds of visitors to the Ripon area for shopping, dining, outdoor adventures and area attractions.
