Crazy Days 2021

August 6-8

CRAZY DAYS: Bringing a Beloved Tradition Back to Nokomis East, August 6-8

The Nokomis East community is lucky to be home to so many businesses, both storefront and home-based. Some are new additions who have recently opened their doors, but others have called the neighborhood home for decades. Thanks to those businesses with the deepest roots in the community, we learned about a much-loved tradition from the past: Crazy Days.

You may be familiar with the annual Nokomis Shoe Shop Sidewalk Sale, which happens every year over the first weekend in August. However, 30 plus years ago, businesses all along 34th Ave used to hold festivities at the same time. The goal? Drawing people into the neighborhood for a Crazy Days event to celebrate the vibrant nature of Nokomis East. 

Nokomis Shoe Shop has continued the Crazy Days legacy every year with their annual sidewalk sale. But, this August, businesses all over Nokomis East will be joining them for the first time in 30 years to revive this beloved tradition..

Contact to learn more about NEBA and our Crazy Days event. We look forward to seeing you August 6-8!

While the Nokomis East neighborhood of South Minneapolis is made up of four primary communities (Keewaydin, Minnehaha, Morris Park and Wenonah), we encourage other Nokomis area businesses (outside of the quadrant) to participate in NEBA.
