The first Thursday of every month is Thankful Thursday. We encourage people to shop local businesses to keep their money local. Many local businesses throughout El Dorado have extended hours that evening and special vendors, food, or music as an added treat to customers. To keep up on what is happening every Thankful Thursday and what individual businesses are doing visit and like the Love Local. Shop El Dorado Facebook page. If you're business is interested in participating contact event organizers at Robin's (316) 321-3280.
El Dorado is an E-Community
El Dorado has made the commitment to cultivate an entrepreneurial environment by becoming an E-Community to help local entrepreneurs start or grow businesses. We have established a locally-administered loan fund, made a resource guide to assist entrepreneurs and small businesses, and initiate activities that generate entrepreneurial development.
