This is not your first rodeo. You know the kind of parties we throw. So when we say we’re fixing on a night as crazy as popcorn on a hot stove, you know we’re not just swallowin’ nails and spittin’ out corkscrews.
Join our herd as the Bloomington Chamber pays tribute to the larger-than-life styles of the old west, colorfully recreated at Radisson Blu Mall of America, where pony meets posh.
Dress in denims or diamonds, bowtie or bolo, stilettos or sequined cowboy boots. You’ll fit right in as you explore the best of the west. Quench your thirst at the saloon. Mosey through the Bonanza silent auction. Gussy up and sit a spell at the old timey photography studio. Then sit down to a spectacular spread in our western-inspired ballroom, followed by the classic country-western music of Church of Cash. It’s all part of the legend, at one of the most fun and creative annual business networking events in the Twin Cities.
Just whatever you do, don’t miss it, or you’ll be so mad, you could back a buzzard off a meat-wagon.

A contribution of a product, a service or a monetary donation will help to make our Gala successful. Your contribution and support will be appreciated and well publicized. This signature event generates revenue for the Bloomington Chamber to support our programming and reinvest in our community. Given that one of the chamber’s major priorities is education, we have created a scholarship program through the Bloomington Future Leaders. We also support our local Community Partners, such as Bridging, Cornerstone, Companies to Classrooms, and VEAP. Portions of the proceeds from our signature events help fund these community outreach programs of the Chamber.
