Pilsen Christmas Window Walk

SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27 AT NOON, ARTISTS DROP THE CURTAINS AND RAISE THE SPIRITS WITH CHRISTMAS-THEMED WINDOW DISPLAYS

CHICAGO, IL – PILSEN (Nov. 27, 2021) — Pilsen-based nonprofit organization, Economic Strategies Development Corporation (ESDC) kicks off its 2nd Annual Pilsen Christmas Window Walk on November 27, 2021, the day of Small Business Saturday®. The windows will be unveiled at the 30 locations starting at 1 pm. Come watch the curtain drop of your favorite artist or local business. For participating artists and businesses, see the list below.

Participating businesses have been paired up with an artist or chose to be their own artist to design a holiday-themed storefront display. From November 27 – January 6, individuals and families can walk off those holiday calories to marvel at the hand-crafted festive creations from over a dozen citywide artists in Pilsen. While doing so, spectators can partake in the contest by voting for their favorite decorated window that captures the essence of the Christmas spirit by scanning the QR code displayed on the window. Last day to vote is Monday, December 20.

In its second year, ESDC developed this outdoor and socially-distanced event to promote economic development to local businesses in Pilsen. Its goal is to inspire holiday cheer and bring Christmas magic among residents and businesses.

In addition to being recognized as the winner of the 2021 Pilsen Christmas Window Walk art contest, the artist will receive $1,000. New this year is 2nd ($500) and 3rd ($250) place prizes. The winners are to be announced on Tuesday, December 21.
