42nd Annual Festival of Trees & Traditions
December 4 – 13, 2015
Join us for our annual holiday fundraiser to view and purchase trees and wreaths created by our community members!
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.
Please note that the museum is closed on Monday, December 7 and Tuesday, December 8.
