· People’s Choice Award: overall downtown champion.

Celebrate Downtown Subcommittee Chair, Clara Piedalue says organizers are “kicking it up a few notches” this year in honour of the five year milestone.

She says last year’s awards were handed out quite quickly but because this year’s gala is being held on a Friday night with an Old Hollywood theme, “we’re going to ham it up” and enjoy some great entertainment as well as raising a glass and celebrating the amazing accomplishments of downtown.

Nominations will be open until April 3rd with the awards gala taking place May 1st at the Multicultural Centre downtown.

You can submit nominations here.
