CHAMBER WELCOME Please use this guide as a reference to businesses in and around Oswego for all your needs. The chamber ended 2015 with 473 members and we continue to grow every month. Look to local businesses for your products and services and keep your tax dollars local. The chamber office is located at 73 W. Van Buren, and I encourage you to stop in. I love to meet new businesses and residents to the area. We have brochures on member businesses, maps of Oswego and bike trails in the area and much more.
Welcome to the fourth Oswego Chamber of Commerce Community Guide and Membership Directory. Oswego was recently ranked 14th best city to live in out of 162 total communities in Illinois by WalletHub.com. To help families find the most familyfriendly cities in the Prairie State, WalletHub’s analysts compared 162 cities across four key dimensions: 1. Family Life & Fun, 2. Education, Health & Safety, 3. Affordability and 4. Socioeconomic Environment. The chamber has many businesses that help contribute to these four key dimensions. We have many events in our great community – Christmas Walk and Lunafest in the winter; Hometown Expo in the spring; Wine on the Fox in May; Prairiefest in Oswego and Summer Solstice in Yorkville in June; and Fox Fest, Literary Fest and the Edward FraidyCat Race in the fall. Movies and Concerts in the Park and Beats and Eats Music & Food festivals will return this summer. Attend an event at Arranmore Arts, run one of the numerous other races held throughout the year or watch local talent preform in a Limelight Theatre production.
