Nominations Now Open for 6th Annual Best of Windsor Essex Awards presented by Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island
While staying home and staying safe, Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island (TWEPI) would like to give you something positive to think of – positive thoughts and memories of some of the best in Windsor Essex! These great parts of our region are what we have to look forward to experiencing post-pandemic/when it is safe to do so, because there is still plenty to celebrate from our region. Businesses pivoted their services, new businesses opened to accommodate the shifting business opportunities, and events adapted to the change in public health measures and protocols.
