296. Festival of Trees

November 15, 2011

Time to grab the kids go see the trees and start to get Holiday Spirt before the malls, Black Friday, TV commercials, etc. suck it out out of you before it real gets going. The Muskegon Museum of Art will host its Festival of Treesfundraising event Thursday, November 17 through Sunday, November 27. For the Festival, MMA volunteers and staff and professional designers transform the largest gallery space in the museum into a holiday panorama with themed trees, seasonal decor, and a gingerbread village and model train station. Festival admission includes access to museum exhibits.  All event proceeds benefit the Museum. Festival of Trees is sponsored by Alcoa Foundation, Howmet.

Custom-designed trees, holiday decor, and other seasonal gift packages and items will be available for sale through a silent auction during the run of the festival. Additional silent auction items on display will include seasonal decorations, gifts, and gift baskets donated by businesses and individuals. Added attractions are live musical entertainment and visits by Santa at various times, and Money Tree and Gingerbread Raffles.

Festival hours: Daily 10:00 am – 5:00 pm. Sundays 12:00-5:00 pm. The festival and the museum will be closed for Thanksgiving Thursday, November 24.
