The Rivertowns Chamber of Commerce encompasses businesses in Dobbs Ferry, Hastings-on-Hudson, Irvington, and Ardsley. We promote business, marketing and networking opportunities to benefit both the villages and chamber members, professionally and economically. The Chamber of Commerce is committed to encouraging local business, employment, shopping and services to make the Rivertowns a better place.

What We Do


The Chamber hosts events and produces resources to help member businesses connect with one another, their potential customers, and other Westchester businesses.


The way we conduct business keeps changing—and the Chamber aims to help its members keep up. We host educational sessions on topics such as local internships, social media tips, and advertising in the digital age. With village-specific committees within the larger Rivertowns Chamber, we also work to inform members about village news that effects their business.


There’s no doubt that the Rivertowns are truly special. We have amazing restaurants, fun shops, and the best at nearly every service you might need. The Chamber aims to celebrate and spread the word about our villages to entice visitors from Westchester and New York City to our establishments.
