Anyone in East Valley area is encouraged to attend one of our meetings to see what we are all about. We are a not-for-profit organization created with the primary goal of bringing back the tradition of the yearly Moxee Hop Festival, held the first Friday and Saturday in August. The profits from the Hop Festival are then put back into the East Valley Community by supporting local events and making donations.


The second Tuesday of each month, unless otherwise posted on the reader board at Moxee City Hall. Meetings are held at Moxee City Hall and start at 7 pm. Please check our Moxee Hop Festival/EVCEA Facebook page as sometimes we begin our meetings at 6.  Meetings are conducted by the EVCEA board.

Some of the ways we have given back to the community are :

  • East Valley Schools - donated monies to the election committees for both the bond and levy, and the Crystal Apple Award to honor local teachers

  • Scholarships - we present two $2,000 scholarships each year to East Valley graduates

  • Easter Egg Hunt - held the Saturday before Easter in the Moxee City Park

  • 4th of July Kids Parade at Moxee City Park

  • Christmas Tree Lighting - each December we sponsor a tree lighting and visit with Santa

  • Christmas Parade ending with a visit with Santa, treats, and a kids stocking giveaway

  • Christmas House Decorating contest


We are a volunteer organization dedicated to making things happen in East Valley and we would love to have you JOIN US!

In 1946, the Mayor called the business men together for the purpose of forming a Businessmen's Club. It was for developing and furthering the best interests of the city and the valley. They held dinner meetings at "Woody's Cafe" in town. After three or four meetings the project of a swimming pool was brought up by, Arthur Cain. The need and location for a city park was also decided. They felt the building of a swimming pool would be too much for just the few business people so other people in the community and various organizations were contacted. In 1947 the Moxee Commercial Club was formed and incorporated.
