Festival of Trees At Morven Museum

Morven Museum & Garden’s 2018 Festival of Trees showcases “Holidays at Morven Through the Centuries,” with juried trees on display November 21 through January 6 in Morven Museum’s newly reimagined galleries.

“Morven’s annual Festival of Trees has been a holiday highlight for years, and this year we’re enhancing it by presenting ‘Holidays at Morven Through the Centuries,’” says Morven Executive Director Jill Barry.

Morven’s Festival of Trees is a juried collection of trees and mantles displayed throughout the museum’s galleries, upstairs and down. This year’s theme invites visitors to tour the newly reimagined first floor galleries, featuring trees inspired by 18th- through 20th-century décor; and the second floor galleries, where imagination runs free.

Festival of Trees decorators include C. Raymond Davis & Sons, Contemporary Garden Club, Garden Club of Princeton, Homestead Princeton, Keris Christmas Shop and Tree Farm, McCarter Theatre, Stony Brook Garden Club, and West Trenton Garden Club

December highlights of this year’s Festival include a Family Gingerbread House Workshop, Colonial Christmas Tea, Morning with Santa, and Pajama Storytime with Gennady Spirin. Docents will be on hand throughout the galleries, however no formal tours are given during the Festival.

Morven Museum & Garden is located at 55 Stockton Street, Princeton. It is open Wednesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Festival of Trees is included with Museum admission of $10; $8 for seniors; and free for Friends of Morven and children ages 6 and under.
