Holiday Shopping Opener

New Ulm is the OG when it comes to Shopping Openers! Lots of towns have been getting in on the action in recent years, but we’ve been hosting our shopping opener since before boutique shopping was cool.

Shoppers make it a tradition to kick off the shopping season here in New Ulm. Eat, stay, shop and play! The New Ulm Specialty Shops have joined together for open houses, tasty treats, events and more.

Check out the New Ulm Women’s Expo and Craft Fair – over 100 vendor booths, crafts, wellness, home businesses and more. This event is sponsored by the Early Childhood Family Education Program and grows every year.
