Shorewood Business District News – November 2022

New Brand for the BID

If our e-newsletter, website and social media look a little different to you, it’s because the Shorewood Business Improvement District (BID) has undergone a brand transformation! Our Board has spent the past six months reviewing, revamping and revising our logo and brand.  It was important for us to find something that conveyed the intersection of commerce and community, movement and growth forward along with adding a nod to Shorewood’s art deco architecture.  The BID continues to focus on creating a thriving hub of merchants and business.  As always, the BID will provide the community with events such as the Shorewood Criterium (Friday, June 23rd), Shorewood Feast & Street Festival (Saturday, September 9th) and Winterfest (Saturday, December 2nd) in 2023, but our goal is do to so much more!  Keep in touch with us at or email us at
