Massachusetts Horticultural Society's Festival of Trees showcases dozens of trees and the Snow Village at Elm Bank for children and adults to enjoy. This annual festival takes place from the end of November through the first two weeks of December at Mass Hort's Elm Bank property, 900 Washington Street, Wellesley, MA 02482.

Visitors "vote" with their raffle tickets, in hopes of winning the tree at the end of the Festival. Visitors can enjoy the decorated buildings and grounds at Elm Bank with a stroll or a horse-drawn wagon ride. For the young at heart, there is a Pajama Story Time, Santa visits, and family craft workshops.

Snow Village at Elm Bank is a wonderful addition to the holiday spirit of the Festival of Trees. Bill Meagher of Needham graciously donated the product of his thirteen year "hobby" of building Christmas villages and trains. Massachusetts Horticultural Society is delighted to share his enchanting displays featuring trains, Christmas in the City (Boston of course!), Fenway Park, New England Villages, and hundreds of decorated houses and lights. This amazing scenery in miniature is sure to get kids excited about the holiday season.

The Festival of Trees, displayed in the Hunnewell Carriage House, offers beautifully decorated holiday trees that are donated and decorated by local businesses, garden clubs, and individuals. Visitors “vote” with their raffle tickets, in hopes of being the tree winner at the end of the festival. Visitors can enjoy the decorated buildings and grounds at Elm Bank with a stroll or a horse-drawn wagon ride. For the young at heart, there is a Pajama Story Time, Santa Visits and Kids' craft workshops.
