“The Chamber is branching out into some new activities for Chillin n Grillin this year.
We want to make it more family friendly. We have live music every night, arts and
craft vendors from around Oklahoma and a one from Arizona that makes Navajo
Indian blankets and jewelry. It seems this event is growing each year and we hope to
keep the success going,” President of Chamber Kristen Valentin.
The Sand Springs Chamber of Commerce started this event in 2011 with just a few
teams. As the event has grown and the community has begun to look forward to it
there are more and more wonderful things added. The highlight this year is the
Carnival. The community can purchase wrist bands for $20 (in advance) and ride
unlimited rides on Thursday and Friday. Saturdays’ rides will be by ticket only.
The Chamber is working on some major projects that will be total game changers for
Sand Springs in economic development. The events we put on help us raise the
money to make them happen.
