Window Displays

Window Wonderland

There's nothing quite like the nostalgia of seeing window displays downtown during the holidays. It's a cherished memory reimagined for a new retail experience. While supporting downtown's retailers and restaurants, stroll by four storefronts transformed using a little help by some recognizable Milwaukeeans and the magic of Retailworks, Inc. Featuring the likenesses of more than 15 well-known Milwaukeeans, these decorated windows promote shopping local this holiday season while also raising the visibility of prime street-level retail spaces available for lease. Storefronts will be refreshed seasonally and remain decorated for several months or until the spaces are leased to tenants.   

Plus, we've sprinkled seven 2020 Milwaukee Holiday Light Festival Hoan Bridge ornaments throughout the window displays. Can you spot them all?
