Havana Nights

 The Alpharetta Chamber of Commerce Gala is set for February 8, 6:30 PM at The Manor Country Club in Milton. The theme of the annual is Havana Nights and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the chamber’s member non-profit charitable organizations. The Alpharetta Chamber of Commerce was established in November 2013 by a group of business leaders who wanted to build a business identity for Alpharetta much like the Chambers in Johns Creek, Sandy Springs, and the Roswell INC do for their cities. It was a goal to create an organization that Alpharetta businesses would be proud to be a member of, and use to grow its current and prospective business base.

Music in Alpharetta

The City of Alpharetta has launched a new 2020 music program to help support businesses and musicians in Alpharetta. The program is called Alpharetta Music Match which is a part of a larger ongoing strategy called Alpharetta Music Project Strategy (AMPS). The AMPS strategy was created to give a framework for music culture in Alpharetta through live performances, educational support of all ages, exposure to all music genres, classes at the Alpharetta Arts Center, utilizing local venues, providing multiple listening opportunities and fun music engagements. The Music Match program launched with the support of Fulton County Arts & Culture and the Alpharetta Convention and Visitors Bureau.  By completing an online application, a business can simply request a music genre. The City will match their music funds and a professional producer will then find the best musician for the business’s unique space and style.  The City of Alpharetta is currently accepting 2020 applications from Alpharetta businesses; restaurants, retailers, and corporations.
