Welcome to the Heart of the
St. John Valley
Welcome To The St. John Valley!
Located in northern Aroostook County and the northernmost edge of Maine, bordering Canada’s province of New Brunswick, the St. John Valley is separated solely by the natural border – the St. John River from Allagash to Hamlin. The inhabitants of the St. John Valley are known for their friendliness, hospitality, ingenuity and exceedingly strong work ethic. They are a proud culture, many of whom are bilingual Francophones, who embrace and celebrate their Acadian heritage through education, foods, festivals and in everyday life. The area serves as the center of Maine’s Acadian culture.
About the Chamber
Our goal is simple: To represent our member businesses and organizations by bringing awareness to them and our community as a whole.
Since we opened our doors in 1982, the St. John Valley Chamber of Commerce has been helping businesses thrive. We do this through personalized instruction, working hand-in-hand with our members and representing their combined common interests.
Membership in a Chamber of Commerce offers numerous benefits and keeps business owners on top of important, ever changing issues and trends within their community and local marketplace.
The region of the St. John Valley is quite vast. The St. John Valley Chamber of Commerce’s coverage area reaches the eastern and central end of that region. It includes the towns of Grand Isle, Madawaska, Frenchville, St. Agatha, Sinclair, and Van Buren.
