Window Wanderland 2019

This year’s event is taking place February 22-24th, 2019! We are delighted to bring to our Community the second installment of Window Wanderland. This community celebration is brought to you by the James Bay Community Centre and James Bay New Horizons, funding for the event was made possible by a celebration grant from the City of Victoria.

Taking part is free, everyone is welcome, you can make a display in the windows of your home, apartment, business, car, and high rise. This inclusive event brings out the artist in all of us. February in Victoria can be dreary and we all need a little more light to brighten our spirits at this time of year. The event is a great way to engage with your neighbors, or get the entire family working on a project together. Get involved, be creative, be noticed, the materials you can use are unlimited, for inspiration and guidance go to www.windowwanderland.com

This year we are encouraging you to wear colorful clothing or add a reflective or light enhancing device to your person, this will make you more visible as you walk the streets of James Bay viewing the amazing window displays.

Upcoming Dates:

Window Wanderland Show and Tell Social at New Horizons on Saturday, January 19th  between 11:00-1:00pm. Come meet your neighbours, swap stories and techniques, enjoy display making demonstrations, refreshments, and get inspired!
