Positions Ottumwa's downtown district as a hub of activity, creating a positive image that showcases our unique characteristics.

Makers' Market

Be Creative!

We freshen up downtown by changing banners a couple times a year and planting and hanging flower pots each spring.

Canteen Eating Contest

Chow down!

The Canteen Eating Contest has attracted large crowds to downtown Ottumwa over the last two years.

Central Park Cinema

Lights, Camera, Action!

On select Saturdays throughout the summer, we roll out the big screen and show family movies in one of our downtown parks!
