About the MSJ Chamber of Commerce

The Mission San Jose Chamber of Commerce is organized for the purpose of creating, enhancing and promoting business activity, fostering civic advancement, and to preserve and perpetuate Fremont’s historic district of old Mission San Jose.

The Chamber was organized in 1909. Early projects included establishing a free library, rehabilitating the fire department, securing 20 street lights for the town, sponsoring clean-up days, and working to restore the mission.

Today, the Chamber of Commerce welcomes business members, as well as individual members of the community.


Our focus is on bringing together everyone in the community to celebrate our history as well as our diversity and contribution to the community.


Join us at our Mixers to network and promote your business. Bring your family and friends to our major community events including the 4th of July Parade, Lobster Fest,  Olive Festival , Christmas Tree Lighting, and Las Posadas.
