The Chamber is dedicated to creating a positive climate for doing business and living in East Northport, NY. The chamber assumes many different roles in benefiting the East Northport community.
We’re the people who ask you to “Support Your Local Merchants”.
We’re the people who bring you the annual East Northport Festival, Christmas Tree and Menorah Lightings, Holiday Decorations, Hanging Baskets, Antique Lampposts and Pavers, Restaurant Week, Annual Food Drive and much more! We’re the people who work with local government to get our roads repaved, get improved lighting and sidewalks/crosswalks, get public areas landscaped, provide the trash receptacles and banners that decorate our streets.
We host monthly networking/educational meetings to keep our membership informed on changes affecting their businesses and keep them apprised of community events.
We support our local schools with a generous scholarship program, and serve as liaison with the Northport-East Northport Drug and Alcohol Task Force – Community Awareness Committee, to keep our children safe.

As a long-time resident of Elwood and East Northport I am honored to have been elected to the East Northport Chamber of Commerce. My wife and I have been members of the East Northport community for over twenty years, where we have raised our two sons who are active members of the Northport-East Northport school community.
Our family business, Affordable Party Rentals, is a company that consistently provides quality products at an affordable price. Each year since we started, we have added many items to our company including tents, bounce houses, movie night, airbrush tattoos, aerial photography and carnival games. Our inventory is constantly cleaned and/or updated. We have been adding “engineered tents” to our collection, as well. These tents can withstand a higher wind load than ordinary tents and are the newest in tent technology.
Our crew, which always consists of at least one family member, will arrive at your location neatly dressed, well-spoken and knowledgeable, ensuring that your experience dealing with Affordable Party Rentals goes smoothly.
