This new community scavenger and medallion hunt will run from November 28 through December 12 to kick off the holiday season. Help us celebrate our vibrant neighborhood, local businesses, and seasonal initiatives safely in the midst of the pandemic.

The “Scavenger Hunt” will include:

  • A hidden medallion

  • Clues to 14 popular Nokomis East landmarks, and

  • A new hashtag to promote your favorite area businesses and initiatives (#ShopNokomis)


NEBA will sponsor $500 worth of prizes from member businesses to be split between five winners. Do you have a prize you’d like to see included? A community event you’d like us to promote? Want to get in on the fun? Contact us at!

There are THREE Ways to Win!


  1. GRAND PRIZE: Find the medallion
    Our NEBA medallion will be hidden at one of the clue locations. If you find it, you win the grand prize! The medallion will be hidden in a safe and visible location – no digging necessary. (One winner)

  2. Correctly identify all 14 locations in the scavenger hunt
    Follow our scavenger hunt clues each day and email your answers to by midnight on 12/13/2020 to be included in the drawing! Watch Facebook, Instagram, and our website for details. (One winner)

  3. Use #shopNokomis
    Share photos of your favorite NEBA business on Instagram – hopefully while making a purchase or supporting a community initiative like “Toys for Tatts” at Nokomis Tattoo! Include the hashtag #ShopNokomis to be entered into our drawing. The more photos you share, the more chances to win! Check our new Nokomis East flyer to find a member business near you!

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.
