Downtown Chapel Hill

Holiday Window Display Contest

This holiday season we invite all downtown Chapel Hill businesses to participate in a Holiday Window Display Contest!

Decorate your windows and facade with your holiday finest.  Choose any theme you wish.  There are no specific criteria for decorations except that lights must be included in the display.  This is a great opportunity to highlight your business during the holidays.  By participating you'll be helping to create a vibrate holiday atmosphere for visitors and residents.

We will create a map of all participating businesses to allow visitors to find and vote on their favorite displays!

  • Incorporate some sort of lighting in the display
  • Be creative and show your community pride

All participating businesses will have their display on an online voting platform for the public to vote on.  The business with the most votes by 5:00pm December 23 wins!

The Prize

The winner will win $600 in ad buys in the local media outlet of your choice.  Encourage visitors to vote for you and promote yourself on social media to increase your exposure!
