Arthurdale Heritage is inviting the public and local businesses to participate in a two-day holiday fundraising event. The Arthurdale Festival of Trees will feature fully decorated trees and wreaths donated by friends, supporters, and businesses. The trees and wreaths will be raffled just in time for the holiday season.
While you shop the Christmas Craft Market or theÂ Arthurdale Heritage Craft Shop, your children can make fun winter crafts with an elf, enjoy cider, cocoa, other treats, and visit our petting zoo!
Tour the Forge & Administration buildings to bid on our donated, beautifully decorated trees and wreaths. Set up and decoration of the trees will take place November 26-28 in the Arthurdale Forge and Admin buildings. Bidding will start on Friday, November 30 with a Wine and Cheese Opening Reception and tree showcase from 5-8 p.m. The bidding will continue on Family Day – Saturday, December 1 from 12-4 p.m. Refreshments will be offered during the event. Steve Marra will be taking family photographs. Sign-up here for your portrait!
