Welcome To The Waukon Chamber of Commerce
We Hope You Enjoy Our Town!
The Waukon Chamber of Commerce is a volunteer association of businesses, industries, professionals and individuals working together to enhance the general business climate of the Waukon area.
The Waukon Chamber was officially incorporated in 1952. The greatest advantage of the Waukon Area is the organized leadership of its business community. The Waukon Chamber represents more than 100 businesses, individuals and organizations dedicated to promoting a healthy local economy and the highest quality of life in our area. Your membership with the Chamber, your involvement in community activities, your visions, your insights and your feedback are all vital links in the chain of our community success.
Our businesses face many challenges in light of technology, the global economy/the shrinking world and other factors. While the players and the playing field change, the business of the Waukon Chamber is about facing the challenges, framing them as opportunities, meeting them head on and having a plan. We cannot be complacent about marketing the Waukon area – we must be proactive.
Waukon is located in scenic Northeast Iowa, a community of 4,200 friendly people. We are the home of a growing business and service oriented community. Surrounded by beautiful rolling hills and a thriving agricultural landscape. Our business and service community includes an energetic downtown with many family-owned businesses and agricultural based enterprises serving the greater Waukon area.
Waukon is home to a variety of well kept churches of various denominations. You will find many civic organizations for all ages. As the county seat, the Allamakee County Courthouse is located in Waukon as well as the Allamakee County Fairgrounds.
AMERICAN PICKERS To Film In Waukon, Iowa
Waukon is excited to welcome Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz and Antique Archeology to the area.
The team will film episodes of their hit series AMERICAN PICKERS throughout Iowa. Filming will begin next month.
AMERICAN PICKERS is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique ‘picking’ on History. This hit show follows two of the most skilled pickers in the business, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, as they embark on an epic road trip across the U.S. in search of America’s most valuable antiques from motorcycles, classic cars and bicycles to one-of-a-kind vintage memorabilia. Mike and Frank are on a mission to recycle America, restore forgotten relics to their former glory, and learn a thing or two about American history along the way.
Filming is scheduled to start next month. AMERICAN PICKERS is looking for leads and would love to explore what you may have. They are on the hunt for interesting characters with interesting and unique items. Some of what they look for: vintage bicycles, toys, unusual radios, movie memorabilia, advertising, military items, folk art, vintage musical equipment, vintage automotive items, early firefighting equipment, vintage clothing, pre-50’s western gear.
AMERICAN PICKERS is produced by Cineflix Productions for History. New episodes air Wednesdays at 9pm ET on History.
