Creating spaces that welcome visitors and invite our community to experience Downtown is just one of the things we love to do at Main Street Ottumwa! We're on a mission to create an inviting, inclusive and people-centered environment for all to enjoy. The Main Street Ottumwa program fosters a vibrant, dynamic, and healthy downtown through community engagement and collaborative partnerships.

3 WAYS YOU CAN HELP YOUR COMMUNITY

ATTEND AND PROMOTE

Main Street Ottumwa Promotions and Organization Committees host many events throughout the year to engage the community and bring attention to our local businesses. Add your favorites to your calendar and plan to attend so that future generations will grow up with the experience of participating in local events.

SHOP LOCAL

Reduce environmental impact, create more jobs, and invest in yourself.   Studies show that money spent locally is more likely to stay local, and be spent again within the community, helping to foster the growth and economic stability of your local community.
