Window Display Contest


Homestead Festival Window DisplaysThe 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 Thursday, September 7th, 2017.

Window displays are a great opportunity for area collectors, historians, businesses, organizations, and clubs to promote themselves. The theme for this year's display contest is "TBA."

The committee would love to see all the windows along Princeton's Main Street decorated to welcome the many visitors who come to our 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 space for their displays. This year's theme promises to be a fun one with a millions 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 Thursday, September 7th, 2017 with the awards being handed out immediately following. All winners will be announced on Friday, September 8th, 2017 during the awards ceremony at Soldiers and Sailors Park.
