The Festival of Trees is a spectacular display of one hundred and sixty-two uniquely decorated trees, sponsored by corporations, businesses, families, and individuals. This annual event is the Museum Guild’s major fundraiser, with funds used to sponsor Art Camp scholarships, and help meet other needs of the museum. This year’s festival is from November 19, 2018, through January 7, 2019. Admission is free and cameras are welcome. We hope you’ll join us for this incredible event.
