Shop Small #WhereIowaStarted
Holiday Hoopla is a two week shop small campaign with 10 retailers from November 28 – December 13!
Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, we recommend contacting the mentioned locations prior to visiting for updated hours or policies. The City of Dubuque and the State of Iowa are currently practicing face-covering mandates for those over two years of age in public spaces, as well as other practices that may impact your visit to Dubuque.
How does it work?
Ten locally owned retailers will be participating in a two-week campaign (November 28 - December 13) to encourage shopping small this holiday season. Starting on Shop Small Saturday, shoppers can pick up a ‘Holiday Hoopla Scratch Off’ where they will receive either a discount, prize from a participating business, or a bit of Dubuque trivia – it all depends on their luck of the draw. Once the campaign is over, shoppers can turn in their cards for a chance to win a $100 gift card, available for each of the participating businesses.
Get a Scratch Off & Holiday Guide
Shoppers can pick up a scratch off card and Dubuque Holiday Guide from all participating businesses between November 28 and December 13. This holiday guide will list each of the Holiday Hoopla retailers as well as things to explore this holiday season.
Scratch off the Card
Shoppers will reveal one of three possibilities on their card - a discount redeemable at each participating retailer, a prize from a participating business, or a fun fact about Dubuque.
Turn in the Card
After December 13, shoppers can turn their cards into the Welcome Center for a chance to win a $100 gift card from a participating business. Scratch off cards must be turned in by December 18. (Gift cards will be purchased by Travel Dubuque at each participating retailer.)
