Downtown Holiday Window Decorating Contest

A Downtown Holiday tradition for 22 years, the annual Holiday Window Decorating Contest was a great success! The Downtown Missoula Partnership invited Downtown Missoula businesses to decorate their buildings/windows with colorful lights, scenery and a variety of decorative elements. Windows will stay decorated through the end of the year – take a tour around Downtown and connect to the Holiday Spirit!

The contest is open to all business located in Downtown Missoula. Holiday displays included light displays on the entire building, and/or window decorations. Prizes are awarded in five categories based on community votes: Best Overall, Most Elegant, Kids’ Choice, Best Use of Small Space, and Most Festive.
