Window Decorating Competition

8th Annual Holiday Window Decorating Competition

The Downtown Tucson Partnership is making downtown Tucson a holiday destination. In effort to support businesses and draw people downtown for the holidays, downtown Tucson will host its 8th Annual Holiday Window Decorating Competition. Through the use of lights and décor, we are encouraging Tucsonan’s to visit Downtown during the holiday season for shopping, dining, entertainment and to experience the season.

The Downtown Tucson Partnership is inviting downtown Tucson businesses to decorate the windows of their business with colorful lights, wreaths, scenery and other decorative ornaments. This year’s theme is Desert Nights Downtown Lights. Businesses are required to register for the competition and windows are judged based on Facebook “likes” and ballet box votes.
