The Everson Museum of Art seeks decorated artificial trees, wreaths or unique displays for the 29th Annual Festival of Trees, held December 5-14. Individuals, schools, businesses, clubs and community organizations who donate items will receive recognition and ticket discounts.

Donated items in all themes, and representing all cultures and faiths are encouraged and welcomed. The diversity of designs and inspirations are what make the Festival truly special.

During the Festival of Trees, the galleries and gathering spaces of the Museum are filled with artfully decorated artificial trees, wreaths and special displays. Each donated item will be sold to raise funds to support the Everson’s programs and exhibitions.

“The talent and originality of those contributing decorated items adds spirit to the Festival each year,” says Sarah Massett, Everson Interim Director. “We are grateful for all the donations that make the Festival of Trees an exciting event every holiday season.”

Contributors receive special recognition on event signage and in the program booklet. In addition, contributors receive either complimentary tickets to the Festival of Trees, or a 50% off ticket to the Preview Gala on December 4. Tickets to the Preview Gala are normally $100 per person.
