About Festival of Trees

Experience the joy of the holiday season at the History Center! Eighty elaborately themed trees are packed into our grand building to delight people of all ages. In past years, we’ve had upside-down trees, trees made from unconventional materials and even a virtual reality tree. You can vote for your favorites, but it will be a tough choice. This year, we’re decking out our 30-foot showstopper in an Indiana theme. There’s something magical happening every day, and you’ll want to check out our special programs. Bring the kids and grandkids to the Sugarplum Breakfast to meet characters from The Nutcracker, imbibe in craft brews at Good Beers and Ugly Sweaters and channel Ralphie at A Christmas Story Day.
