A Magical Holiday Event for the Whole Family
Massachusetts Horticultural Society's 14th Annual Festival of Trees showcases dozens of decorated trees and Snow Village, a festive model railroad display. Join us for this festive & fun holiday event at the Garden at Elm Bank.
Displayed in the Hunnewell Building, Festival of Trees offers beautiful holiday trees that are donated and decorated by local businesses, garden clubs and other organizations, and individuals.
Visitors vote with their raffle tickets for trees they would like to win and take home at the end of the event. Trees range from one foot to nine feet tall, and many have gifts in addition to beautiful decorations.
Enhancing the Festival is Snow Village, an indoor model train exhibit. Model trains wend 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. With too many Santas to count and skaters galore, Snow Village is a visual treat for young and old alike.
Holiday lights and decorations fill the Garden. Visitors stroll through a winter wonderland with hot chocolate in their hands and gather by the firepits to keep warm and cozy while melting s'mores.
