30th ANNUAL FESTIVAL OF TREES
Every year during the holidays the Museum of East Texas transforms into a brightly colored forest lined with rows of trees covered in festive holiday decorations. The community comes together to put on the Festival of Trees as each tree decorated and displayed is sponsored by a business, family, group of friends, or individual. Bring the whole family and wander through our philanthropic forest.
Festival of the Trees opens November 25. Join us as we celebrate the 30th year of this glittering annual event! Open seven days a week through January 10, 2025. Free and open to all.
