A New Holiday Tradition

To herald Christmas 2023, a museum in downtown Davenport, IA, transformed its facade into a giant Advent calendar. The museum reveals a new window each day in the lead-up to Christmas. The artwork in the windows was designed by students at the Davenport Creative Arts Academy.

Similar giant Advent calendars have popped up in windows throughout the United States and Europe including those in Chicago, IL, Crowley, LA, and what claims to be the “world’s tallest” Advent calendar in downtown Jacksonville, IL (shown).
