Sign-up now for the 37th annual Festival of Trees


Now’s the time to register for the annual Festival of Trees at Hastings Museum! Our annual Tree Decorating Party is set for Friday, November 22, 4-7pm or Saturday, November 23, 9am -1pm.


Festival of Trees form


This year marks the 37th year area clubs and community groups have brightened the Museum with beautiful – and sometimes very creative – Christmas trees. It allows non-profit youth and adult clubs to showcase their organization with decorations reflecting the purpose of the club. Each tree is distinctive, and who knows, you may get an idea for decorating your own tree!

Bring one non-perishable food item per person for admission to the museum for participating club members AND their immediate family during the decorating party. The food will be donated to the Hastings Food Pantry to help those in need.

Please Note: Electrical outlets and space are limited due to our exhibit storage needs. Outlets on the main level will be guaranteed only to the first 15 completed registrations. All other trees will be located on other levels and may or may not have electricity. Thank you for understanding as we help the Library during their renovation.

Pick up your tree on January 2nd or 3rd
between 9 am and 4 pm. Trees remaining
beyond January 15th will be donated to

Last year, nearly 60 groups, including Scouts, 4-H clubs, and other non-profit organizations participated in brightening the Museum.

For more details, please contact Teresa Kreutzer-Hodson at 402-461-2399 or collections@hastingsmuseum.org.

Trees will be on display November 17 through January 1, 2018.

Mark your calendars and plan to visit the Museum during this year’s festival. It is sure to put you in the holiday spirit!
