It's new, improved — and you don't want to miss our summer celebration of all things local and cultural, diverse and inclusive.

From shopping to business networking to local music and food, DIVERSIFY week June 19 – 23 offers themed daily pop-up markets and concludes with the Chamber's annual DIVERSIFY Luncheon.

We're building a business community that includes everyone.

Chattanooga's most culturally diverse marketplace, our DIVERSIFY pop-up markets celebrate what makes our region special, showcasing small and large, rural and urban, multigenerational and multicultural, innovative, sustainable and creative businesses, as well as the nonprofits that support our communities.

It's the perfect place for vendors to sell merchandise and market to thousands of area residents and visitors.
