Calling on artists to decorate downtown Langley shops and possibly win big cash prizes. The Langley Main Street Association invites artists to go wild with imagination and holiday cheer and help Deck the Doors to create a beautiful holiday outdoor gallery.

Three winners will be chosen by an impartial panel of judges and each will receive a $1,000 prize.

Deck the Doors, a Langley tradition, helps brightens the town for the holidays and rewards artists for their talents. Last year decorations were found on over 40 shops throughout downtown; some featured all hand-crafted decorations, many used imaginative materials to reflect the theme of the shop, others brought humor and smiles. The biggest winners were the visitors to town who enjoyed the displays.

Doors must be ready for judging by Wednesday, Nov. 25. Winners will be announced on Dec 19 at Boy and Dog Park, where the winner of the Langley Chamber $1,000 shopping spree will also be announced.

If interested, email mainstreet@whidbey.com for more details. Merchants can contact their favorite artists or receive a list of interested artists from Langley Main Street, or be their own artists.

  1. I’m interested, as an artist. How does it work? Does the shop pay for the decorations? Do winners split the funds with shop owners?
