Breakfasts/After Hours

A premier mainstay of the Rhinebeck Chamber is our frequent networking opportunities. Each month, we host a Business Breakfast and/or Business After Hours, open to members and non-members alike. These events are held at a member location (restaurant, office, gathering space, etc) and often sponsored, for a reasonable fee, by a fellow member for added exposure.

Bartender Wars

One of our most popular trademark events is Bartender Wars, held each Fall in Rhinebeck. This spirited and energetic event is a coming together of our finest mixologists competing for the best cocktail award – the coveted Silver Shaker. A non-alcoholic award is also given to the best virgin cocktail. Open to the public, you can  taste and sample, compare and contrast – and vote your favorite. This special event is a fundraiser for the Chamber, helping to support our various initiatives.

The Good Egg Award

Our most celebrated Rhinebeck Chamber affair is our annual Good Egg Award and State of Rhinebeck Dinner, presented each January. The “good egg” is awarded to a local businessperson who goes above and beyond to make our community a better place to work and live. It’s a time to honor our esteemed colleagues. Pictured here – our 2021 honoree, Dave Hughes, owner of Dave’s Tree Service.

Music on Market

Music on Market is a feel-good celebration of live music in Rhinebeck. Featuring local musicians one evening each weekend in the summer and fall, you’ll enjoy sweet sounds as you wander, stroll and shop. Situated in the center of Market Street (in the Rhinebeck Bank plaza), it’s an artistic centerpiece of the village.

Holiday Lights

Our most beloved wonder is Rhinebeck’s famous holiday lights adorning the heart of the village each winter. The sparkle and elegance of these lights, in addition to our decorated village Christmas tree, is a sight to see for anyone visiting or living in Rhinebeck. And if you haven’t caught the annual Sinterklaas Festival each December, you are in for quite a treat.
