The Festival of Trees is a well-known fundraising event that happens in cities and towns all over the country. It has been a tradition in Silver City for decades, and has been hosted by GMS since 2013. GMS purchases a variety of live Christmas trees which are decorated by local artists, individuals, and organizations. The result is a stunning, unique display of ornamented Christmas trees highlighting the incredible creativity of our community. The trees will be exhibited at the Old Post Office on Broadway. The adorned trees, as well as many other plants and holiday items, are for sale, and the Winter Wonderland we create will be a joy to experience for people of all ages! This is our single largest fundraising event, and we are looking forward to a great Festival of Trees this year!
