The Williams Lake Stampede has returned! To celebrate this event, Downtown Williams Lake is hosting a Stampede Window Decorating Contest. Participating downtown establishments will dust off their boots, pull down their hats, and turn on their creativity to transform their windows into a celebration of all things rodeo. The grand prize for the best decorated window will be a gift basket filled with products and goodies worth $300, and runner-up prizes will be $50 gift certificates, all from our beloved downtown businesses. There is no fee to participate in this contest.

Important Dates:

Registration deadline – June 8, 2022

Contest dates – June 20 to July 2, 2022

Judging dates – June 30 or July 1 (we will work with your business hours)

To show off your hard work, Downtown Williams Lake will also be sponsoring a scavenger hunt for the public from June 23 to July 2. Your window decorations will contain the answer to one of the scavenger hunt questions. Please have your windows fully decorated by June 20 so that we can create the scavenger hunt question list!
