The Northeast Kingdom Chamber is the tri-county's largest and only fully staffed chamber, handling travel promotion, community/economic development, legislative/governmental relations, business networking and promotion of regional projects.

The chamber, based out of St. Johnsbury with about 300 members, is conveniently located at the Green Mountain Mall, across from JCPenney.

We believe the best businesses in the Northeast Kingdom are Northeast Kingdom Chamber members.

Polish Baltic Philharmonic Orchestra
Date: Tuesday, February 15, 2022
Time: 7:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Founded in 1945 on the heels of postwar Polish independence in Gdańsk, the Polish Baltic Philharmonic is the largest music institution in northern Poland. One might think that long periods of political turbulence may have weakened the arts in Gdańsk, yet the reality is quite the opposite. The Polish Baltic Philharmonic, as it exists and thrives today, represents an amalgamation of international and historical influences, while still capturing the pride and artistry of contemporary Poland and the larger Baltic Sea coast.
