We would like to invite you to be a part of this festival by designing and displaying a holiday tree, wreath, basket, handmade jewelry or other home decoration. Your item may be loaned to us to display throughout the festival or you may donate it to us for the silent auction, which runs throughout the event.

With over one-hundred items displayed each year, the Granger Homestead is a holiday wonderland. Visitors from all over the region will come to the Festival of Trees during its run from November 9th through December 8th to get into the holiday spirit by walking through the festively decorated rooms of the Granger Mansion.


There is no entry fee for exhibitors. You may participate as an individual, a family, with friends, as an organization or a business. Student groups are encouraged to enter. Decorations can be traditional or carry a theme. The possibilities for creativity are endless and participants find decorating the Homestead a great deal of fun.
