Massachusetts Horticultural Society’s Festival of Trees will showcase over 75 trees and a new addition to the festival,  Snow Village at Elm Bank ―for children and adults to enjoy. This annual festival, in its sixth year, will take place from November 28 until December 14, at Mass Hort’s Elm Bank property, 900 Washington Street, Wellesley, MA 02482.

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 Pajamas – Story Time on Friday nights and Santa Visits.

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.

Admission is $10 for adults, $6 for children 12 and over, children under 12, no charge.  The Mass Hort member rate is $8 for adults. The festival is open November 28-December 14; Wednesdays and Thursdays, 4-8pm and Friday through Sunday, 10am-8 pm. The Festival is open weekday mornings, by appointment, for nursery school and senior tours.

Please check back here for more information on scheduling. And if you would like to get involved, please consider sponsoring part of the festival or contributing a tree – check out the forms on the links below.

The Festival of Trees is a holiday fund raiser for Mass Hort, a 501 (c) (3) educational organization.
