Information for Village Businesses:

The Carlsbad Village Association invites businesses in the Village to turn our downtown into a Winter Wonderland this holiday by entering the Carlsbad Village Window Decorating Contest.  The Window Decorating Contest is a fun way to celebrate the holiday season, create a festive and beautiful downtown, attract visitors to the Village, and showcase your business.  The Carlsbad Village Association will coordinate the contest and will promote participating businesses to the local media before, during and after the contest.  And, terrific prizes will be awarded to three lucky businesses!

How to Enter:

It’s easy to participate in the Carlsbad Village Window Decorating Contest.  Sign-up by emailing your business name, contact name, contact phone number and contact email address to by November 15th.  The information you provide will allow us to promote your business and tell people how to find you.  It’s that simple!

How it Works:

Start your planning now!  Windows need to be decorated by Friday, November 27, 2015 (Black Friday) and should remain on display through December 25, 2015 as we will continue to promote businesses through Christmas Day.  Participating businesses will receive marketing materials to use in promoting the contest and encouraging shoppers to vote for their business.

Between November 27 and December 15 voting will take place.  Your customers and visitors to the village will be able to vote for the “People’s Choice” award via the Carlsbad Village Association website and possibly other methods to be determined.  In addition to “People’s Choice” we will have a “Kid’s Favorite” voted on by the Boy’s and Girl’s Club and a “Village Vision” award voted on by Carlsbad City dignitaries.

On December 18th the winners will be announced during a special celebration complete with carolers.

More details will follow the first week in November.  In the meantime, feel free to email questions to
