About the Winthrop Harbor Chamber of Commerce
The Winthrop Harbor Chamber of Commerce would like to welcome all new residents and visitors to our beautiful ever-changing village of Winthrop Harbor. Our Village is a growing community located at the furthest northeast corner of Illinois.
Winthrop Harbor is growing by leaps and bounds. We have more and more new businesses opening as well as more and more new housing being built. We have more and more new businesses opening and we hope and encourage you to shop at our local businesses and attend our current events throughout the year. Information for current events and activities can be found on our website. Also, if you have a business, home-based or storefront, we encourage you to contact us, attend a ‘Networking Meeting’ and join your fellow business owners as a Winthrop Harbor Chamber member.
The Winthrop Harbor Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit organization run by an elected Board. The Board gives time and energy to promote our fine village and growing businesses.
The Chamber is embarking on a bold revitalization program designed to overhaul the organization’s infrastructure, increase the vigor of its advocacy and rally the Winthrop Harbor Business community together to shape our future. The revitalization of the Chamber, as an important business, federation is just beginning.

We have the largest Marina on the Great Lakes with 1500 wet slips, charter fishing, restaurants and the Yacht Club. Over 1,000,000 visitors travel to the marina each year.
As you travel around our Village and surrounding areas, you will notice the many wonderful attractions in this area, such as parks, historic sites, churches, golf courses, shop, restaurants and beautiful tree lined streets.
