With over 800 successful members employing over 18,000 employees, the Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce and Industry is the tenth largest chamber in Massachusetts. Inspired by the leaders and journeymen who carved out a piece of history during our days in ship building and various other industrial revolutions, we remain committed to our unique Yankee character, which includes a passion for creating a vibrant and supportive local economy for all to enjoy.

While we’re made up of members that are as diverse as a metropolitan city, our small size and waterside existence continue to keep us humble. At the very least we’re a networking organization for our downtown retailers and restaurateurs, Doctors and Dentists, Lawyers, Bankers, Accountants, Manufacturers, and Advertising professionals, to find an important business connection through. To the thankless non-profit staffers and volunteers who help the hungry and less fortunate, we’re also a way for them to raise their voice. But in our finest hours, we’re the steady wind that keeps the high times rolling for all―lending a hand when someone needs a boost or a head start―while having a great time along the way.

We serve as both tourism bureau and economic engine for the Greater Newburyport area and manage or support most of the region’s most popular events throughout every season of the year.

Newburyport has something to offer for everyone, throughout the entire year. During winter enjoy cross-country skiing or snowshoeing at Maudslay State Park, or get cozy by the fireplace at one of our many restaurants and inns. In the spring, stroll through downtown and admire the window boxes and hanging flower baskets that fill the city, or take a birding field trip on Plum Island. In the summer you can take a harbor tour or a whale watch, sun yourself on the beaches of Plum Island, enjoy a free summer concert/movie, or stroll through our many museums. Fall is a wonderful time in Newburyport. Come to the Fall Harvest Festival, or shop downtown. Join us for the holidays, and find the perfect gift for that special someone. Anytime you visit, you will find that Newburyport is a seaport for all seasons.
