These spirited businesses and individuals show the world that Ionia is vital and thriving in Michigan, while showcasing pride in the community.
On the last Saturday of January, the community comes together for an annual ‘Red Carpet’ Event. Everyone is invited to ‘do it up in style’ at the beautiful, historic Ionia Theatre. The evening is filled with entertainment, fun at the red carpet event to congratulate the hard work and contributions of businesses and individuals in the community.

Why is this an important night?
It takes a lot to keep a business going – 80% of all start up businesses fail in their first two years. Passion, care, attention to detail, and the extension of all of these to customers, staff and community are the hallmarks of successful businesses. The Ionia Area Chamber of Commerce wants to recognize these businesses and individuals who have demonstrated true success year after year.
