Tickets are now on sale for Central Florida’s 31st annual Festival of Trees.

Every year, the Orlando Museum of Art is transformed into a winter wonderland filled with wreaths, trees and gingerbread houses by Council of 101. Celebrating its 31st year, tickets to the Festival of Trees are now on sale.

Visitors can enjoy the festive displays, or even purchase one of the designer-decorated trees, holiday wreaths, centerpieces or gingerbread houses.

“Many of the items on display would make wonderful gifts for anyone on your holiday list, says Virginia Kane, of Council of 101. “The trees, wreaths and gingerbread houses make a great addition to any family’s holiday decor.”

Over the years, the Festival of Trees and other Council of 101 events have helped to raise over $7 million for the Orlando Museum of Art’s educational programs and operational expenses.

One of the trees from last year, called The Peace Tree, will be on display again this year in the rotunda at Orlando City Hall. The tree was designed in remembrance of the city joining together in love and support for one another following the Pulse attack.
