Every year our downtown businesses compete in a friendly window decorating contest for the holidays! Our team of esteemed judges go out and deliberate winners of the following categories:

Best Window/Exterior  (professional & non-professional)
Best Interior Design
Best Restaurant/Eatery
Best Design (service provider)

We also turn the gavel over to the people of Burlington to vote for their favourite and help decide winner for the final category:

People’s Choice Award

We are asking the public to submit photos they’ve taken of your display. A special “PEOPLE’S CHOICE” AWARD will be granted at our ceremony on Tuesday December 13th. Scroll down for a full list of participating businesses OR look for the Christmas Windows of Downtown participant posters!

You can vote through social media by:

Posting a picture of your favourite display
Tagging us @DTBurlingtonON (Twitter and Instagram) and including the
Hashtag #CWOD16


Posting on our Facebook wall Downtown Burlington.

Three winners will be randomly selected by the BDBA from the pool of voters. Each winner will receive a bundle of gift certificates donated by participating businesses. Each picture posted will count for 1 vote and it must be an original picture (retweets, re-posts, shares or likes do not count as votes).
