Window Decorating Contest

Windows throughout the historic downtown area will light up again this 2019 holiday season.  From the grand homes in the Residents of Old Wilmington District to the shops and restaurants in the festive Downtown Districts.  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 Holidays.

From Downtown’s historic core spanning from the Cotton Exchange to Chandler’s Wharf along with Castle Street, Brooklyn Arts and South Front Districts.  It will be a delight for visitors and local alike.

Take the free Port City Trolley to visit windows in each Downtown District.  You can hail the trolley along its route or at designated stops. Click here to see the Trolley route.
