Please note: We are still accepting orders for the new banners, although we will not be able to guarantee installation by Memorial Day for any banners ordered after the March 3 deadline.




Following the popularity of the 2013 banner program, The Tamaqua Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce a new banner program for 2017 (see example shown here). The new Hometown Heroes program is intended to honor any local hometown hero who has provided beneficial service to the Tamaqua area. These heroes may include first responders, organization volunteers, civic leaders, active military, veterans, and may be living or deceased.

Banners will be displayed on available poles throughout downtown Tamaqua. Banners are constructed of heavy weight, outdoor vinyl with slits to minimize wind damage. We cannot guarantee a specific location for placement of any banner. The banners will be displayed for a minimum of one (1) year. Banners may be rotated during that time period, if necessary.


Cost per banner: $200, includes a $25 donation to various local fire companies.


Cash, check, or credit accepted. Checks should be payable to Tamaqua Chamber of Commerce.


Application/photo submission deadline: March 3, 2017


Target date for banner installation: May 2017


Target date for banner removal: May 2019


Photo requirements: Digital image preferred as AI, EPS, PSD, PDF, WMF, DOC, PUB, TIF, BMP, JPG, or GIF. Digital file should be less than 5 MB. Hard copy photo also accepted.


Completed and signed photo release form required with submission of photo. See link below for form.


The banners will remain property of the Tamaqua Area Chamber of Commerce while displayed. The banner can be returned to purchaser at end of program.


There was a waiting list from the 2013 banner program, and those people are being contacted first. The remaining banners will be sold on a first come, first served basis.
Anyone who currently has a banner on display, please contact the chamber to let us know if you'd like to keep the banner when it is removed. We are also looking into the possibility of displaying those banners in local buildings for anyone who does not wish to keep their banner.
