The Downtown Windsor Business Improvement Association (DWBIA), in partnership with the Province of Ontario and Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island (TWEPI), is unveiling, for the second year in a row, festive downtown window displays.
Twenty (20) storefront windows, designed and decorated by two beloved local artists, Carlyne Peach and Julia Hall, are intended to be a feast for the imagination, adding to the brilliant holiday ambiance of the core.
These living holiday cards, scattered throughout the DWBIA’s boundaries, are sure to attract visitors and inspire family traditions − something many agree is much needed again this year.

“It is very encouraging to witness a seasonal transformation of Downtown Windsor during Winter Fest. Being able to provide much needed holiday cheer and expression throughout the district resonates well among residents and visitors,” says Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island’s CEO Gordon Orr. “By partnering once again with the Downtown Windsor Business Improvement Association, Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island is delighted to have the creative talent of local artists on display, thereby fostering a great sense of community and pride of place.”
DWBIA Chair Brian Yeomans agrees. “For many families, visiting these holiday windows have become a new family tradition,” says DWBIA Chair Brian Yeomans.
“The storefront canvasses are both a nod and a throwback to Christmases of years past, when families descended upon the downtown to enjoy the holidays, and a promise of a brighter holiday and years ahead,” Yeomans adds.
