The Muskegon Museum of Art’s 13th Festival of Trees community holiday celebration runs Wednesday, November 22 through Sunday, December 3, 2017. 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.
