Crazy Days & Marktstrasse are BACK!

Crazy Days | July 24, 2021

Crazy Days will include the famous Ball Drop with special deals from local stores. Businesses are asked to create their own balls with their own discount on them, then the Chamber will let them fly on Saturday at 9am. If you’re interested in the ball drop, please use the sign-up sheet. All balls must be prepped and ready for distribution by Thursday, July 22. It is free to participate.

Local shops will be moving discounted merchandise within their stores! Check on Facebook for more details from your favorite locals.

Crazy Days is also featuring kids games, a dunk tank, face painting, and more. During the evening, Crazy Days will also feature an outdoor movie, right on the street. (movie title has yet to be confirmed).

Marktstrasse | July 24, 2021

We’re excited to announce that once again Maker Fair Minnesota is teaming up with the Chamber of Commerce to present: Marktstrasse!

Maker Fair has a higher standard when choosing who they allow to be vendors at their events. They make sure there is a variety of products available from sellers (no overabundance of one category) and every vendor ONLY sells handcrafted items – no third-party goods! Marktstrasse will take place downtown on Saturday, July 24th from 9am-2pm. Marktstrasse (Market Street) is so named after a Crazy Days staple from years ago. Contact Maker Fair Minnesota for a registration form: 507-340-1721, 507-340-1720, or

Come for Marktstrasse and stay for New Ulm Crazy Days! Crazy Days 2021 takes place throughout New Ulm July 21-25. Get crazy deals and, more importantly, support New Ulm’s local businesses!

For questions about Crazy Days, contact the New Ulm Area Chamber of Commerce at 507-233-4300 or
