Window Decorating Contest

Window Decorating Contest

Windows throughout the historic downtown area will light up again this 2017 holiday season.  From the grand homes in the Residents of Old Wilmington District to the shops and restaurants in the festive Business District.  You may even see boats and the Riverwalk decked out festively along the bustling River District.

The Window Decorating contest is organized by the Downtown Business Alliance (DBA) and includes a People’s Choice award that is part of the Historic Wilmington Holly Jolly Holiday Stroll.

The purpose of the annual Holiday Decorating Contest is to create a festive atmosphere to capture the imagination of area shoppers and visitors.  Business owners can enter storefront windows, atriums and entire buildings in the competition. Entries range from Downtown’s historic core spanning from the Cotton Exchange to Chandler’s Wharf to Castle Street and to the Brooklyn Arts District’s North 4th Street.

Anyone is eligible to vote by visiting the shops before or during the Holly Jolly Stroll.  Voting begin on Friday, December 8th and ends at midnight on December 10th.
