Experience the Magic of the Holidays | CWE Window Walk

Saturday, December 5
1-5 p.m.

Experience the magic of the holidays at the Central West End’s annual Window Walk, now in its 11th year. Visitors are invited to safely stroll amidst elegantly decorated windows, while shopping at boutiques, and enjoying seasonal libations and delicious meals at local restaurants. Visitors can also enjoy FREE socially distanced holiday festivities, including ice carvings, carriage rides, carolers, live music, street performers, a roaming Santa, and more!

Window Walk brings back the time-honored tradition of going downtown to see festive windows, while showcasing the CWE’s retail and dining establishments. Local designers partner with select businesses to decorate their windows, and this year’s theme for all designs is “Family, Friends, and Neighbors” — a special reminder that even though this year’s festivities may look and feel a little bit different, our loved ones (whether near or far) can still bring us joy this holiday season.

Embark On ‘A Walking Xmas Carol’ | Euclid Ave & Maryland Plz

All Weekend Long

In addition to windows being designed by CWE businesses and local designers, the CWE Business Community Improvement District is partnering with St. Louis Shakespeare Festival and PaintedBlack STL on ‘A Walking Xmas Carol‘ — an immersive winter walk featuring 15 local artists, designers, and makersA perfect complement to the CWE Window Walk tradition, “A Walking Xmas Carol” is a 21-stop, audio-musical and window-display reimagining of the classic tale by Charles Dickens. Local artists from PaintedBlack STL have created large-scale window installations interpreting Scrooge’s journey from a never-before-seen perspective while the musical adaptation Q Brothers Christmas Carol from the Q Brothers will guide guests throughout the walk along Euclid Ave. and Maryland Plz. The walk is outdoor and self-guided. No reservations required. Click here for more information.
