This year we teamed up with the Oxford Downtown Council for a window dressing contest. We invited the businesses on and around the Courthouse Square to participate from mid-January through the festival, which ended February 9th. 

We provided posters and festival merchandise to interested businesses, and awarded a Contributor Level sponsorship (a $1000 value) to our favorite window: SOMETHING SOUTHERN. Other participating businesses included: Knit 1 Oxford, Visit Oxford, Brooks Collection, and Holli's Sweet Tooth.
