Community events are a major part of what we do at the Red Oak Chamber and Industry Association. We believe that community engagement is vital to improving the quality of life.
The annual meeting is a time for all of our members to get together and celebrate all that we accomplished in the previous year. It is also a time to induct new board members and give thanks to those that are moving on.
In March we host our Annual Ag Appreciation Dinner. At this event we honor those in the community who serve in the agricultural field.
In May we host the ROCIA Golf Tournament at the Red Oak Country Club.
Junction Days are a very special time in Red Oak to celebrate our community and our rich history. Junction Days is always held the last full weekend in June. ROAR (Red Oak All-Class Reunion) is a unique experience for all graduates to come together and celebrate their hometown. Junction Days has a number of events, so everyone can find something that interests them, whether that be the BBQ contest or the mud volleyball tournament.
Join us for a tour of local Victorian-Era homes and learn more about our community’s rich history! This event is always held on the 3rd Saturday in September. The Southwest Iowa Art Tour is also always on that same day!
the ROCIA Membership/ Volunteer Appreciation Dinner is a special time to thank all of you for supporting us and our events throughout the year.
Below you will find photos from our 2020 holiday events. Thanksgiving weekend we held our annual kickoff celebration. Friday night we held a ceremonial lighting of Historic Fountain Square Park. Saturday was a fun filled morning featuring visitors from the North Pole! Santa rode in on a lighted firetruck, we had 2 live reindeer, and 2 elves as well. Later in the month we hosted family photos with the community Christmas tree.
