What is Festival of Trees?

The Festival of Trees at the Buttonwoods is an annual fundraiser hosted by the Buttonwoods Museum in Haverhill, MA. The fundraiser lasts two weeks from the last week in November until the first week in December. This year is the 18th anniversary and every year there are list of fun events that help put everyone in the holiday spirit!


Our Festival may not be as big as other Festival of Trees in the area, but every year we have a great selection of trees, wreaths and centerpieces that are donated by generous individuals and companies that are raffled off at the end of the Festival. Many people have told us that our Festival of Trees is more enjoyable and not as overwhelming or “cold” like the other festivals. Having our Festival in the museum helps to create a warm and inviting atmosphere that feels more like Christmas. We hope you come visit and experience it yourself!
