About Indiana Historical Society's Festival of Trees

Experience the joy of the holiday season at the History Center! Ninety-two elaborately themed trees - a dozen more than last year - 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 as a tribute to nature in Indiana. There’s something magical happening every day, and you’ll want to check out our special programs. Bring the kids and grandkids to Sugarplum Saturday to meet characters from The Nutcracker and indulge them with The Sweet Experience, imbibe in craft brews at Good Beers and Ugly Sweaters and channel Ralphie at A Christmas Story Day.
