Ribbon Cuttings

Do you have a grand opening or major anniversary to celebrate?

We want to help commemorate your success!  Call the Plainfield Chamber at 317-838-3800 to set a date and time. (You must be a new or current member of The Plainfield Chamber of Commerce to participate in chamber ribbon cuttings.)

The Plainfield Chamber will provide you with the large, ceremonial scissors and a long length of ribbon for the photo op.  Plus, we will put your ribbon cutting date and time on our event calendar, social media and post about your event once it occurs.  It is it is recommended to provide your own photographer as we're not always able to have one attend.

Here are some helpful tips to make your ribbon cutting a successful event.

Helpful Planning Tips

Because your ribbon cutting is your event, there are no set guidelines other than the following tips:

  • Most ribbon cuttings last anywhere from 15 - 30 minutes.
  • Ribbon cuttings are primarily photo ops for you to share your business opening with the community.
  • You may provide refreshments if you choose, but these are not necessary.
  • The Chamber always has at least one staff member, and a few board members show up at every ribbon cutting and you may invite anyone else you choose.
