Nov. 29-Dec. 8. 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. Public hours for viewing the Festival of Trees &
Traditions are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The museum will be open on Monday and
Tuesday during this time.
