Festival of Trees - Community Decorating

The Wright County Historical Society's 2018 Festival of Trees runs from Tuesday, November 27, 2018 - January 4, 2019. Nearly 2000 visitors enjoyed last year's event and we're planning for an even bigger response this year!

NEW FOR 2018: We regret that NO GLITTER will be allowed inside WCHS (includes ornaments, decorations, paper, anything that contains glitter) as it has worked its' way throughout the exhibits. Any items containing glitter will be removed, bagged, and returned.

Community decorating will take place between November 1-16, 2018 ONLY to allow WCHS staff to complete set-up of remaining trees, staging and all those little extras needed for the November 27, 2018 opening. All requests for tree decorating must be submitted through the online form HERE; this form is for individuals, families, groups and organizations to request a tree for decorating during the 2018 Festival of Trees. All requests are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis by WCHS staff and will be approved or denied through email.  Due to the increased number of requests staff can no longer take requests by phone or at the Heritage Center--we want to make sure no one's request gets lost in the WCHS holiday excitement! :)
