Massachusetts Horticultural Society’s Festival of Trees is not only an important fundraiser, it is one of the most festive occasions at The Gardens at Elm Bank.
From November 29 – December 15, Mass Hort will display over 60 beautifully decorated trees, which will be raffled off on December 15. During the festival, visitors may purchase tickets for a chance to win the tree(s) of their choice. It’s fun, and for many it has become a family tradition.
While the beautifully decorated trees are the centerpiece of the event, the Festival of Trees also includes garden lights, visits from Santa, horse-drawn carriage rides, the Snow Village, model railroad display, and a fire pit with s’mores.
Following the tree raffle on December 15, Festival of Trees will continue for two more weekends, December 20 – 22 and December 27 – 29, with the Snow Village and garden lights
The Festival of Trees is a wonderful celebration of the holidays.
