To serve and advance the welfare of Quartz Hill and the surrounding communities by promoting local business and encouraging civic interest.
The History of Quartz Hill Chamber of Commerce
After the now-Quartz Hill area was started, a Civic Improvement Association was formed and worked well for a while, but community and business eventually called for a better status symbol. Thus, in 1948, the Quartz Hill Chamber of Commerce was formed.
In early 1950, Jane Pinheiro and Byron Glenn observed the almond trees coming into bloom, and they decided that Quartz Hill should have a festival at almond blossom time. The suggestion was taken to the Chamber of Commerce and the Almond Blossom Festival was instituted. A queen was chosen, a parade planned and the first festival got underway. It has been an annual event ever since and draws an audience from 2,000 to 3,000 people.
The Chamber had been meeting in several locations since inception in 1948. In 2002, community labor along with donations were put together and the Quartz Hill Town Center was created. The Quartz Hill Town Center building is home to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department – Quartz Hill Office and home to the Quartz Hill Chamber of Commerce. Please come by and visit us.
