Adult Leadership Applications Due AUGUST 1ST!

Leadership Sulphur Springs is back on this year, with applications online!

The leadership class is for Hopkins County men and women who want to learn and become more invested in their local community. It’s an intensive nine-month program that immerses the participants in the business and government of Sulphur Springs and Hopkins County.

The tentative dates for this year’s program are attached to the application, which can be accessed at

The registration fee is $500 and that covers the cost of the food, drinks, transportation, etc. for the year.

Now Accepting Stew Market Vendors!

We are now accepting applications for this year’s Stew Market!

Booths are $100 each or $75 for Chamber members.

A few things to keep in mind: we do not allow food vendors or food trucks (other than baked goods and these spaces are fully booked).

Spaces are 10×15, outdoor and located on the south side of Buford Park with no access to power.

This year we have chosen to no longer accept marketing / promotional booths other than our “Market Sponsor.”
