Come Celebrate the Season at Orlando's premiere holiday event, the Annual Festival of Trees in November. For nine magical days, the Orlando Museum of Art (OMA) is transformed into a glittering holiday wonderland where trees, wreaths and gingerbread houses ignite holiday spirit. Presented by the Council of 101 to benefit the OMA, the Festival of Trees is sure to delight every family member.

A collection of exquisite trees, full-scale holiday vignettes and gingerbread creations, all decorated by local designers, are at the heart of this enchanting event. Decorated wreaths and smaller trees are displayed in the Deck the Halls area. Local culinary artists exhibit their talents in the Gingerbread Village. Art on the Wall showcases original artworks by Central Florida artists. Every tree, wreath and gingerbread house is available for purchase.

Each year special activities are designed just for children to make crafts, email Santa or play games. Guests can purchase holiday gifts and decorative accessories in the Holiday Boutique or get a bite to eat in the Festival Cafe. In addition, there is daily entertainment featuring a wide array of talent and holiday spirit, ranging from appearances by Santa Claus, choir performances and other special events.

The nine-day Festival of Trees is packed with special events beginning with the elegant opening party, Patron's Gala, an elite black tie affair on the opening Friday evening. Children have an evening of their own at Reindeer Romp. The ever-popular Holiday Jazz Stroll will take place on the final Friday of the event. Please call the museum to confirm the dates, times and prices for these special events.
