Massachusetts Horticultural Society’s Festival of Trees showcases dozens of trees and the Snow Village at Elm Bank for children and adults to enjoy. This annual festival takes place from the end of November through the first two weeks of December at Mass Hort’s The Gardens at Elm Bank, 900 Washington Street, Wellesley, MA 02482.

November 29 – December 15 - *dates for trains and lights:
December 20 – 22 and December 27 – 29

Festival of Trees, displayed in the Hunnewell Building, offers beautifully decorated holiday trees that are donated and decorated by local businesses, garden clubs, and individuals. Visitors “vote” with their raffle tickets, in hopes of being the tree winner at the end of the festival. For the young at heart, there are Santa Visits and other activities.

Snow Village at Elm Bank is a wonderful addition to the holiday spirit of the Festival of Trees. Bill Meagher of Needham graciously donated the product of his thirteen year “hobby” of building Christmas villages and trains.

It is a bit different each year as he continues to tweak the arrangement. Massachusetts Horticultural Society is delighted to share his enchanting displays with model trains winding through villages and vignettes, including Christmas in the City (Boston of course!), Fenway Park, and hundreds of decorated houses and lights. This amazing scenery in miniature is sure to get kids of all ages excited about the holiday season.

Admission is $15 for visitors aged 13 and over, and Member admission is $10. Join Mass Hort at the Festival and admission is free! The Festival is open November 29 through December 29, weather permitting.

The Festival of Trees is a holiday fundraiser for Mass Hort, a 501(c)(3) educational organization.
