The Muskegon Museum of Art’s 12th Festival of Trees community holiday celebration runs Thursday, November 17 through Sunday, November 27. In what has become a local tradition, volunteers will transform Museum galleries into a festive wonderland. The themed decorations and trees are 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. Special events and activities are also part of the Festival.
The Festival will be open daily 11:00 am to 5:00 pm, noon to 5:00 pm on Sundays, and closed on Thanksgiving. Professionally designed themed trees and décor will set a festive holiday mood. Trees, décor items, and gift baskets will be available for purchase through silent auction over the 10 days of the Festival, and special events, raffles, live music, and gift shopping will add to the fun.
To volunteer, call Marguerite Curran at 231.720.2574.
