Connect to the Community by Participating in Events

The Chamber hosts numerous events throughout the year designed to help businesses connect with one another. From the Annual Excellence Awards banquet to weekly ribbon cuttings and networking lunches, we offer a wide variety of events for members of all sizes to connect with one another.


96th Annual Excellence Awards

Each year, we celebrate EXCELLENCE in our community at our Annual Excellence Awards Banquet. One of our most well-attended events, the banquet includes dinner, cocktails, and networking while we end the evening by honoring our community’s most influential difference-makers.

Sporting Clay Shoot

The Summit Shoot is a sporting clay shoot that takes place in May. The event is held at the Ellis County Sportsman’s Club and includes the sporting clay shoot, breakfast, lunch, an awards ceremony, and concludes with raffle prizes.

Gingerbread Golf Tournament

Come enjoy a day of fun in the sun at our Annual Gingerbread Golf Tournament. This event celebrates some of our best golfers, while also letting even our non-golfers in on the games, prizes and fun! The 2023 Gingerbread Classic Golf Tournament proceeds benefit the development of new leaders through the Waxahachie Chamber Commerce "Bridge Program."
