Windsor Celebration Reminder:

In support for our neighbours to the north, the City of Windsor is set to host an array of local activities and events, bringing the excitement of the NFL Draft to Windsor. In addition to NFL Draft banners decorating the downtown core, residents and visitors will be treated to “Windsor's NFL Draft Party” on Saturday, April 27, 2024. This free fan event will take place on the front lawn of City Hall from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., promising a day of fun-filled activities for all ages. The celebration will include NFL-themed interactive games, an NFL Draft viewing area, a free football skills and coaching clinic for local youth, music, complimentary snacks, and appearances from some of Windsor’s very own NFL alumni players. 

The event will culminate with an evening celebration organized by the Downtown Windsor Business Improvement Association (DWBIA) to celebrate the NFL Draft in Detroit, our “Two Nation Destination,” our community’s own football history, and the impact and legacy of the NFL around the world. Additionally, downtown Windsor businesses are anticipated to host viewing parties from April 25 to 27 at various locations.
