Keeping Our Community Thriving, Together
The Tri-Cities Chamber is proud to be a lead member of the Tri-Local Collective — an initiative that is geared towards educating and motivating our community to support local Tri-Cities businesses and business owners.
What is the Tri-Local Collective?
Tri-Local is a collective effort to support local businesses in the Tri-Cities and was initially established during the COVID-19 pandemic, in an effort to help curb the economic impact felt by local businesses.
In February of 2021, the Tri-Local Collective launched our first-ever Taste of the Tri-Cities campaign to help bolster one of the pandemic’s hardest-hit sectors — the food and beverage industry.
Meet Our Tri-Local Partners
Together, the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce, Austin Heights Business Improvement Association, Downtown Port Coquitlam Business Improvement Association, Port Moody & Co., Shop Local Port Moody, and Tri-City News are working collectively with the cities of Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody, to educate and motivate our community to support Tri-Cities.
Taste of the Tri-Cities
Taste of the Tri-Cities was initially conceptualized to support one of the hardest-hit industries of the ongoing pandemic, by encouraging the community to safely come together in support of Tri-Cities restaurants.
As an event that brings together and shines a spotlight on our local bars, cafés, craft breweries, and restaurants, Taste of the Tri-Cities encourages members of our Tri-Cities community to come together in support of local restaurants.
Our inaugural Taste of the Tri-Cities festival took place February 15 – March 19, 2021, and we ate, drank, and enjoyed exceptional dine-in and take-out specials, all in support of local restaurants within the Tri-Cities! During this time, we promoted our vibrant food and beverage industry to over 200,000 members of our Tri-Cities community.
Providing culinary enthusiasts with the opportunity to try and taste some of the best flavours in the Tri-Cities, Taste of the Tri-Cities is all about celebrating the different culinary talents and experiences that the cities of Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody have to offer.
Savour the Summer
This summer, Tri-Local will be highlighting different cuisines and beverages available in the Tri-Cities every week, from June until September.
In addition, the Tri-City News will also be running giveaways on its Facebook page. Enter weekly, beginning on Mondays, for your chance to win gift cards from local restaurants!
