Many local businesses volunteer to ensure that students are introduced to public speaking, city government, personality testing, volunteering, working together to complete a ropes course, and many other areas vital to building strong Leaders of Tomorrow.

 

 

Annual Awards Gala & Auction  

Last Friday of January each year at 6:00 p.m.

Come celebrate with an evening of fun and friends at our Annual Awards Gala & Auction.  This is the Chamber’s major fundraising event and is always a wonderful evening. Start with a relaxing reception as you bid on silent auction items, followed by a wonderful dinner and entertainment.  We then honor our fellow businesses and volunteers with the annual awards program. The evening would not be complete without the energetic live auction with great items up for bid.  It is truly an event you do not want to miss.

Czech Festival

1st Saturday of October each year

The Oklahoma Czech Festival is a Yukon tradition celebrating the town’s rich Czech heritage.  The day-long festival officially kicks off at 8 a.m.  Thousands line Main Street for one of Oklahoma’s largest parades beginning at 10 a.m.  Following the parade, performances by polka bands and traditional folk dancers are enjoyed by all.  Traditional Czech foods including kolaches and sausages feed the hungry crowd.  Dozens of arts and crafts booths and festival food vendors line the streets.  The Chamber provides 10’ X 10’ booth space for businesses to rent in order to promote what they have to offer our community.  The Oklahoma Czechs, Inc., the City of Yukon and the Yukon Chamber of Commerce work together to bring you a truly unique experience. 2015 was the 50th Anniversary of Czech Fest in Yukon, the Czech Capitol of Oklahoma.

Stores Without Doors

Late October or early November each year

Stores Without Doors is a community coffee hosted by the Chamber at the Dale Roberson Center. This event provides member businesses that do not have a store front or enough space the opportunity to host a coffee. For a small fee, participants reserve a table to display and distribute promotional items.  They will also have 1-2 minutes (depending the number of participants) to highlight their business to the attendees.

 

 

Yukon Yuletide Express (formally Shop Yukon)  

November and December each year

Yukon Yuletide Express is our “shop local” campaign designed to increase awareness of and encourage shopping at local, participating businesses.  This program is designed to keep our tax dollars working in Yukon. Tickets are distributed to customers for purchases made, and these tickets are put into a drawing for $5,000 in “Santa Bucks” for winners to spend locally.  More local shopping means more chances to win and increased profits for participating businesses.
