The Window Activation Grant program continues this winter as part of DGRI's on-going efforts to support Downtown businesses and foster an active and vibrant four-season City.

Ground floor storefront businesses can apply for this seasonal reimbursement grant to support the creation of window designs and displays. These creative activations encourage foot traffic and attract visitors to a more vibrant and welcoming Downtown retail environment.

Businesses that agree to certain stipulations related to the World of Winter 2024 festival will be included in festival maps and promotional materials. The two-month festival runs from January 12, 2024, to March 10, 2024, and is now the largest winter festival in the United States with over 100 art installations, ice sculptures and events.
