Wellesley Festival of Trees

Wellesley Festival of Trees
Wednesday, Nov 29, 2023 from 10:00am to 6:00pm
The Garden at Elm Bank
900 Washington Street,

Massachusetts Horticultural Society's 15th 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.

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 mores.

Tickets will be released to Massachusetts Horticultural Society members on October 3 and to the general public on October 17. Become a member today to get early access and discounts on Festival of Trees tickets!

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.
