Welcome to New Ulm, Craft & Vendor Events!
We have had a GREAT year so far.
Our first events March Madness & Spring Fling were tons of fun with some great crafters & vendors.
The Shop the Lots made it all the way with good weather.
CraftoberFest ended big this year! Our 1st weekend saw tons of people coming down 1st leaving our vendors with some good sales. The 2nd weekend didn't see as heavy of traffic but the sales were bigger for most!
And! after chatting with all the crafters & vendors towards the end of Oct. 15 it was decided to keep having a 3-day event for CraftoberFest every year. We thought the vendors would be okay if we cancelled the second weekend but they said NO!
Our last event of the year was Holly Days with Santa. But this year we have asked Mrs. Claus to come with.
We will had 30 different crafters & vendors, some both days and some only for 1 day mixing it up a little. FREE treats & drinks for all shoppers.
Prize table thanks to all the crafters/vendors coming in donating an items that we give away to shoppers.
Kids activities with R.A.W.R. (Raising Awareness on Wildlife & Rivers). They do some great activities with the kids at our parks here in New Ulm and are coming to Holly Days to have more fun.
This event didn't go over so well. Althought we had many vendors who said they had a good time, the traffic was really low for some reason which was not normal for Holly Days.
Friday in the evening we would normally start getting more traffic as people are coming to town for New Ulm's Parade of Lights, but we didn't see that this year. Saturday should have been a good day with nice traffic which starte dout great! but slowed down and stayed that way.
Even though all of our vendors did have sales, we decided because of the low traffic we are giving all who attended a free event this coming year.
Next year we will be adding to our Shop the Lots. Check out our calendar to see what we are doing for our 2023 events here!
