The Bowie Chamber of Commerce continues to support our community by taking this opportunity to educate others on how to protect each other from the spread of germs.

  • Wash hands regularly for at least 20 seconds.
  • Have hand sanitizer available as an alternative.
  • Cover nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing.
  • Wipe down counters, cash registers, keyboards, mouse, and electronic devices often with cleaning wipes.
  • Greet folks with smiles and avoid handshakes.
  • Get plenty of rest and fluids to fight illness.
  • Call before seeking medical care in order to not contaminate others.

We also want to acknowledge the impact that a wide-spread panic can have on our local economies. We will make every effort to continue with our work to support local businesses and downtown community leaders through these uncertain times. The U.S. Small Business Administration has economic relief information for small businesses, including an Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program.

The World’s Largest Bowie Knife

The Bowie Knife is done! We have built the world’s largest Bowie Knife, certified by the Guinness World Records measureing 6.24 m (20 ft 6 in) long.

If you’ve ever dreamed of getting your name in the world’s most famous record book, this is your chance to do the next best thing!! It’s not too late to have your name or memorial chiseled in granite. We still have tiles in all sizes available… prices for tiles range from $250.00 to $550.00. Want to make a larger contribution? We still have a limited number of benches available for $5,000.00.

The idea of the ‘Bowie Knife Monument’ was pitched to the Bowie Chamber of Commerce by the late Bob Hadley, local rancher and bronze sculptor. Board members Bryan Brown and Van Baize are the Bowie Knife Project Committee Chairmen. “This is an exciting addition to our city. We look forward to the completion of the 3-dimensional replica of the Bowie Knife”, says Baize.

BOWIE… OUR COMMITMENT TO YOUR
BUSINESS GROWTH.

In 1998, the residents of Bowie approved a one-half of one percent sales tax dedicated to promoting economic development in the City of Bowie. These funds must be expended in accordance with State Law to facilitate eligible projects. The responsibility of the Bowie Economic Development Corporation is to reinvest the funds in Bowie, to expand the city property tax base and create quality (primary) job opportunities.

Interested companies are required to complete an incentive proposal which requires a business plan and/or model, financial statements for three-years and a third-party economic impact study to determine the projected economic impact the business will have on the City of Bowie.
