— As so many of our holiday events have been canceled this year, we aim to continue the festive holiday feel for our visitors in a more visual, independent way. This year, the MBPA will be hosting a town-wide Holiday Window Design Contest. We are excited to see the creative and festive holiday décor that each retailer comes up with!

WHEN: Each space will be responsible for having their holiday windows completed by THURSDAY, Dec. 3. This ensures all decorations will finalized and installed by the annual town tree lighting event (Dec. 4). Displays should remain thru Dec. 25.

WHAT: Each store will creatively decorate their store windows for the upcoming holiday season. Stores will be judged on:

  • Creativity/Holiday Theme
  • Visual impact (both in daylight and in the evening/dark)
  • Overall “wow factor”


  • Judging will take place from Dec. 4–6 by a secret panel of judges.
  • Winner(s) will be announced Wednesday, Dec. 9
  • Winner(s) will have a special personalized feature on visitmiddleburg.com and all corresponding social media platforms. Winner(s) can use this feature to market holiday gift guides and shopping experiences. MBPA will work with the winning business(es) to collaborate and execute the feature as desired by winner(s).
