The Office of Economic Development is available to assist in ribbon cutting and grand opening celebrations for businesses located in James City County. We bring the ribbon, the scissors and help you publicize your business. If you are interested in having a ribbon cutting, please contact us using the form below at least two weeks in advance, but preferably four weeks from the event date.
A ribbon cutting can range in scale from a small event with a photo opportunity to a larger, more formal event that may include activities such as speakers and/or product sampling/sales/giveaways. In some cases, a business may prefer to have a soft opening prior to a larger grand opening event. The important thing to remember is that this is your event and therefore can be tailored to your specific needs.
Please select a date for your event. Please allow at least two weeks to invite local officials.
Please select the type of event.
Please provide additional information that may be helpful.
