The Festival of Trees and Traditions at the Wadsworth is back for its 43rd year. Community members, artists and organizations have decorated holiday trees and wreaths, which are available for sale or viewing in the galleries throughout the week. Families should be sure not to miss Santa and Mrs. Claus from 10:30-1:30 on Sundays and 2-5 on Saturday, December 10th.
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 10am–5pm from December 2–11, except for Monday, December 5 and Tuesday, December 6 when the museum is closed.
