Holiday Open Houses


On November 17, from 4:30pm-7:30pm, Downtown Ottumwa will be full of activity and shoppers for the Holiday Open Houses.


Register your business to participate and get the added benefit of being listed on the Main Street Ottumwa Facebook page with nearly 7,000 followers. We will work hard to get customers to the Downtown and we'll let you take it from there!

On November 26, 2022, Main Street Ottumwa will drop "snowballs" with stickers attached.  Attendees of the event will then pick up the snowball and come to your business to redeem their prize or discount. This does not have to be a large gift or cost a lot of money. This event is intended to drive traffic to your business for Small Business Saturday.


If you have questions please call Fred Zesiger, Main Street Ottumwa’s Director @ 641-814-5225 or email  Your form and check can be made out to Main Street Ottumwa and mailed to 334 E Main St., Ottumwa, IA 52501. You may also fill out your form and pay online below.

This event is sponsored by Meridian Credit Union and JBS. Live Santa is sponsored by My Chic Boutique.

Deadline for submission: November 4
