In 2020, we present the 27th Annual Festival of Trees! Although COVID-19 will certainly make everything different this year, we are committed to making sure the tradition continues! The health and safety of our thousands of visitors and hundreds of volunteers is absolutely the most important consideration for all of us. So, while we won’t be bringing record-breaking crowds to 13 Branch Street to experience the trees in person, we are looking forward to presenting our beautiful trees on this site and other social media platforms.
2020 has been a pretty tough year for most of us. Would winning $10,000 help turn that around? Although you won’t be visiting the Festival to purchase your raffle tickets at Center Court this year, that shouldn’t stop you from taking a chance to take home $10,000 just before Christmas.
The Festival Raffle – once again sponsored by our friend and generous benefactor, Charles – will open on Saturday, November 21st and will be available through Sunday, December 20th. As always, the pricing for these tickets is: 1 for $5.00, 6 for $10.00, and 26 for $20.00.
Each year the Online Auction features a variety of highly sought items; sports fanatics, foodies, travelers, collectors, and everyone in between are enthralled each year with our wide range of items. The Festival’s Online Auction has included tickets for sporting events and entertainment, celebrity autographed memorabilia, hotel getaway accommodations, skydiving and private plane tours, unique holiday gifts, and other unique experiences. The auction opens on November 21st and will close on Sunday, December 6th.
‘Visiting’ the Festival of Trees will be different this year. Each of the creative, innovative, and beautiful trees presented by our talented and generous tree donors will be on full display for all to see on this website and on other social media platforms. What won’t be different this year is your ability to take one of these magnificent trees home when the raffles have all been drawn.
The virtual Festival of Trees will open on Saturday, November 21st and run through Saturday, December 5th. Whether you take a chance to win a tree or just visit to Share the Magic, you’re sure to enjoy the experience.
We are excited to announce a special edition of the Festival of Trees at Greycourt State Park! In a year when so many of our holiday traditions won’t be happening, our goal is to bring a drive-thru festival of trees and lights to our community. Methuen residents may remember the days when the former Tenney Castle was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Although the castle is long gone, the remnants will be decorated as a reminder of this wonderful time in Methuen history.
The Festival of Trees at Greycourt State Park will open on Friday, November 27th and run through Sunday, December 20th.
