Downtown DSM Hide and Seek Ornaments You Keep

  • Overview

    The Greater Des Moines Partnership is bringing its free, fun pop-up activation called Downtown DSM Hide and Seek Ornaments You Keep back to Downtown Des Moines (DSM) this holiday season. Each day from Friday, Dec. 3 to Sunday, Dec. 12, local artists will be placing handmade ornaments in different locations in Downtown Des Moines. Ornaments will be located in trees near retailers, restaurants & attractions in Western Gateway, Historic Court District, central Downtown & the Historic East Village to encourage patrons to shop local while participating in the scavenger hunt. To learn more about shopping local in Greater Des Moines, visit the DSM Local web page or the #DSMlocal Buying Guide.

    Downtown DSM Hide and Seek Ornaments You Keep is part of a series of winter events occurring in Downtown DSM including the Holiday Promenade and the outdoor Downtown Winter Farmers’ Market.

    Artists will make sure that ornaments are easily accessible & will post pictures and clues on the whereabouts of the ornaments each day using #downtownDSM & #DSMlocal. Interested individuals can also find more information as well as ornament photos by following @downtownDSMUSA on FacebookTwitter and Instagram. Participants who find an ornament are invited to share a photo of themselves with the ornament for social media & then take it home with them. Please limit to one ornament per family.

    Local artists & ornament placements for Downtown DSM Hide and Seek Ornaments You Keep will be announced on website/link!
