ANNOUNCEMENT regarding Jammin’ on Janesville (please share):
The Muskego Chamber of Commerce is in its eighth year of organizing Jammin’ on Janesville. Originally, this event was created to support businesses along Janesville Road during the road construction. During construction, the Chamber received supporting funds from the City of Muskego along with sponsorships from the business community. After the construction, we no longer received the additional funds from the City of Muskego. Instead the Chamber’s business members sponsored the event and focused on connecting with the community. Thank you to those businesses who have partnered throughout these years to create this popular event. It continues to grow and brings a sense of community and excitement to our street each summer.
Along with that growth, the Chamber has addressed several challenges in funding, parking, and finding volunteers to work the event. We continue to do our best in securing these and believe this event is beneficial to our service area. This past year we reviewed ways to make it more efficient. We surveyed the business members and non-members who sponsor/rent vendor areas for their opinions. After considering both the resources to organize it and the survey results, the Board of Directors chose to focus resources and efforts on the June date for Jammin’. This has been our most popular date and does not conflict with other events, as often happens during the month of August. Many of our volunteers and business members also participate in Muskego’s National Night Out and the Community Festival. By moving all Jammin’ on Janesville activities to the month of June, we feel we can better support the other community events in the month of August.
We will focus our best resources on making the June Jammin’ a fun, family-oriented, and community-connecting event. Please help us spread the word that Jammin’ on Janesville’s only date this year will be: Friday, June 1, 2018. Registration for the food court (open for Chamber members participation) and the Vendor Business area (open for both members and non-members) will be available at the beginning of April. Marketing materials for the event will occur in May.
