Tourism and Visitors Bureau

Members of the Tourism & Visitors Bureau Board of Directors are appointed by the Mayor of St. Peter with the concurrence of the City Council.  The Bureau’s purpose is to engage in and conduct, at such times as the Board may determine, efforts to promote the St. Peter area as the site for conventions and business conferences; to increase the number of visitors to St. Peter through improved promotion of services, attractions, and area events; and to develop and promote additional attractions and special events. Tourism meets the 8 a.m. the fourth Friday of each month at the Chamber office.

The Bureau is funded through a three percent tax, levied by the City, on lodging facilities within the corporate boundaries of St. Peter.

All St. Peter citizens are eligible to serve on the committee. The meetings are open to the public.

Task Forces

The Chamber coordinates and executes several business promotional events, networking outings, and community celebrations annually. This is achieved in large part through the contributions of dedicated volunteers and staff who commit their energies to making these events successful. Additional help is always needed and participation in a task force can be a great way to build connections and contribute to a rewarding endeavor.

Please call Tonya or Ed at 507-934-3400 to sign up to serve on a task force.
