Spooky Selfie Contest
Take a selfie in Downtown’s haunted graveyard or strike a pose with your favourite Downtown ghoul, post your photo to Facebook or Instagram and tag @downtownorangeville to be entered to win $100 Downtown Dollars! We’ll draw one winner each week from October 12th to October 31st!
We encourage all our downtown businesses to get involved in this fun contest by taking a staff selfie! Share your photos with us on social media and we will re-share on our feed! Show your community spirit and promote your business at the same time!
Are you open Sundays for the holiday shopping season? If so, then we want to promote YOUR business! Starting mid-November, we’ll be promoting that Downtown Orangeville is the place to be on Sundays for holiday shopping, dining, live theatre matinees & more!
Please take a look at the current list of businesses who are open on Sunday and let us know ASAP if you would like to be added or removed from the list for the Holiday shopping season (November 21st

Blade Sign Grant Program
Just a friendly reminder that applications are still being accepted for the OBIA’s Blade Sign Grant Program! The OBIA Blade Sign Grant Program offers a simplified sign permit process and a reduced permit fee. Successful applicants will be awarded up to $635 CAD for the purchase and installation of a new blade sign.
Have you always wanted a beautiful hanging sign for your storefront? Now’s your chance! Effective signage is essential for brick & mortar businesses and research shows that blade signs are key to attracting pedestrians.
The OBIA Blade Sign Grant Program offers a simplified sign permit process and a reduced permit fee. Successful applicants will be awarded up to $635 CAD for the purchase and installation of a new blade sign.
It’s important to note that this process STARTS and ENDS with the BIA. We will work with you from the initial consultation to the final stages to ensure that your design meets the criteria, the appropriate permits are obtained, and your application is approved!
For example, did you know that the most successful blade signs describe what is inside the business, and not the name of the business? This is because tourists are not usually looking for a company name, they are looking for “coffee” or “books” or “women’s clothing”. This is one important requirement for your new blade sign, and we look forward to chatting with you to make sure that your sign will be a success!
