Festival of Trees


For the 8th year in a row, the Wright County Historical Society will create an indoor, winter wonderland with a dazzling Festival of Trees display. Free and open to the public, the Festival of Trees highlights Wright County businesses, families, and organizations through a variety of traditional and uniquely themed, lit Christmas trees. This year there are more than thirty individual trees, along with a Santa writing station, animated characters and even an electric train display (courtesy of Leander Wetter).

Each year WCHS provides this venue as a gift back to our community and invites everyone to come and enjoy! The Festival of Trees will be open daily from Wednesday, December 3-January 9, 8am-4:30pm with Tuesday nights open until 8:00pm (closed December 24-26 and January 1). For more details please call 763-682-7323 or visit us on Facebook.

I’m so grateful to be a part of a community that “gives back.” To me, this event was planned with giving in mind - to kids, parents, soldiers, etc. I so appreciate it!
