About Festival of Trees & Traditions:

Established in 1973 by the Women’s Committee as a museum fundraising event, Festival of Trees & Traditions has become an annual holiday custom for visitors from throughout the state and beyond. Every year community members, artists and organizations decorate holiday trees and wreaths to be displayed in the galleries throughout the week. All items are for sale, and profits help fund the museum’s special exhibitions, educational programs, and operating expenses. Purchase a tree or wreath for your home or donate it to a local charity.

A $3 fundraising surcharge is added to ALL regular admissions during Festival of Trees & Traditions.

Groups of 10 or more will receive a discount by reservation only. To schedule a group visit, call (860) 838-4046.

The Festival of Trees & Traditions is presented by the Women’s Committee of the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art. All proceeds from this event fund the museum’s special exhibitions, educational programs, and operating expenses.
