Holiday Window Contest


The Holiday Window Contest is returning!

The holidays are here, and Salem is dressed for the season with trees, wreaths, and ribbons. To top it off, over 20 downtown businesses participate annually to decorate their windows especially for the holidays, starting Friday, Dec. 8th.  Judges nominated by Salem Main Streets make the rounds to vote on the best windows.

We especially recommend checking out the windows during Festive Fridays, when numerous businesses around the downtown have committed to staying open until 8 pm to aid in your holiday shopping. More information about Festive Fridays and participating businesses can be found at

In addition, this year, you get a chance to win! Salem Main Streets holds two social media competitions on Facebook and Instagram right now.  Post a picture of your favorite #salemholidaywindows, or take a #selfiewithashopkeeper on Festive Friday nights, and you could win a prize from a local business.
