Owatonna, a Jewel on the Prairie
Each summer residents of Owatonna dedicate some time to celebrate our community and all of the treasures that surround us. This celebration has grown throughout the years to include things like Crazy Days Sidewalk Sales, kiddie parades and concerts in the park. These events have become treasures themselves and we now celebrate all of them as Owatonna GEM DAYS.
Join the celebration!
We’ll celebrate our historic buildings and our beautiful parks and trails. We’ll celebrate our history, our legends and our entrepreneurial spirit. We’ll celebrate our art & music and our attractions & entertainment. We’ll celebrate our businesses, our services and our schools. And above all, we’ll celebrate our citizens who are GEMS, one and all!
