Homestead Window Display Contest

PRINCETON — The Homestead Festival Window Display Committee invites all area businesses and organizations to participate in the annual Homestead Festival Window Display Contest.

The contest will be held on Sept. 11. Window displays are a great opportunity for area collectors, historians, businesses, organizations and clubs to promote themselves.

The theme for this year’s display is “Back in the Day.” 

The committee would love to see all the windows along Princeton’s Main Street decorated to welcome the many visitors who come to the Homestead Festival. 

Business owners who choose not to decorate their window are invited to make their windows available to clubs/organizations/collectors/historians looking for a space for their displays. This year’s theme promises to be a fun one with a million possibilities. 

Get in on the fun and entice customers to your business with a unique window for Homestead Weekend. 

Judging for the windows will take place on Sept. 11 with the awards being handed out immediately following.

All winners will be announced on Sept. 12 during the awards ceremony at Soldiers and Sailors Park.
