The Williamston Area Chamber of Commerce welcomes you to Williamston and our beautiful surrounding area. The Williamston community holds many events throughout the year, a few of which include: a Holiday Light Parade, held on the first Saturday in December; Autumn Days and downtown trick-or-treating, held in October; the Annual Red Cedar Jubilee and Craft Show, held the third week in June; Discover First Friday in Williamston events; monthly Business Networking Lunches; Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies; After Hours Mixers; and more.
As the community grows, Williamston maintains its beauty and charm. The downtown business district features many historic buildings and is centered along Grand River Avenue at Putnam Street, with the Red Cedar River flowing through the heart of the city. People are attracted to Williamston because of its quaint, small-town . Yet the city is only a mile from I-96, which offers convenient travel to jobs, colleges, entertainment and shopping centers. Williamston is located just five miles from the Meridian Mall in Okemos, nine miles from Michigan State University in East Lansing and 14 miles from the State Capitol in Lansing.
