Join us for a delightful holiday experience as we celebrate the beauty and tradition of decorated holiday trees.
Massachusetts Horticultural Society's thirteenth Festival of Trees showcases dozens of faux decorated trees as well as Snow Village, a model railroad display. This annual event takes place at The Gardens at Elm Bank.
Visitors will be warmed with a cup of hot chocolate (included with ticket) as they arrive. Stroll through the outdoor garden lights, visit Weezie's Garden for Children, and explore Snow Village. This is a visual treat for young and old alike and each year it is a little different! Snow Village features model trains wending their way through villages and vignettes, including Christmas in the City (Boston of course!), Fenway Park, a Dickensian village, the North Pole and hundreds of decorated houses and lights.
The highlight of the event are the dozens of beautifully decorated holiday trees that are donated by local businesses, garden clubs, area organizations, and individuals. Visitors have the option to win their favorite tree(s) by purchasing raffle tickets, the raffle is drawn on December 19. Tree sizes vary from one foot to nine feet in height and many have various gifts in addition to whimsical decorations. Guests will wrap up their visit at our fire pits, toasting S'mores (S'mores kit included in ticket price).
