 Free concert at Oats Park
Free concert-in-the-park on June 18 at 7:30 p.m.
This performance is presented in cooperation with the mayor, Fallon City Council and city of Fallon
For the past 20 years, Hackensaw Boys have been a hard-touring force of nature in the American roots music world, bringing a punk ferocity to their string band base and a powerful sensitivity to their ballad roots.
Operating more as a collective than a band, Hackensaw Boys were around before the O Brother craze kickstarted Americana, back in the old alt-country days. Since forming they have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with many amazing and diverse artists, such as the Avett Brothers, Old Crow Medicine Show, Trampled by Turtles, Rambling Jack Elliot, Cake, Cheap Trick, De La Soul, and many more.

 The chamber provides resources, support and education to help businesses be successful.

The chamber works hard to represent thelocal business community, but as a non-profit 501(c)6 organization, the chamber relies on members and board of directors to partner with us to serve businesses and our community as a whole! Many people wonder what it is the Chamber of Commerce is exactly.
By definition, a chamber of commerce is a local organization of businesses whose goal is to further the interests of businesses. Business owners in towns and cities form these local societies to advocate on behalf of the business community. Local Chambers work on the local level to bring the business community together to develop strong local networks, which can result in a business-to-business exchange. I
In most cases, local Chambers work with their local government, such as their mayor, their city council and local representatives to develop pro-business initiatives.
 If interested please nominate yourself or someone that you think would be vital to aiding our business community.
