The Muskegon Museum of Art hosts its 9th annual Festival of Trees November 21 through December 1. In what has become a local tradition, MMA volunteers and staff will transform the museum galleries into a festive holiday display and host special events to kick off the holiday season. This year’s “Candy Town” theme will inspire themed trees, wreaths, and other holiday décor created by local designers and sponsored by individuals and organizations in the community. Visitors can bid on the trees, décor items, and donated gift baskets during the Festival’s on-going silent auction.
