Festival of Trees

December 2 – January 7, 2024. Join us for the annual Festival of Trees at the Museum. Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season and enjoy strolling through a forest of beautifully decorated Christmas trees. Each tree is sponsored by a local business and extravagantly decorated to create stories of magic, hope and awe. Stop by the Gratitude tree and leave a note of why you are grateful. Celebrate this community tradition with family and friends. The Festival of Trees is free to attend, open daily from 10:00am to 5:00pm throughout the month of December.

Each year, visitors vote for entries in three categories: Most Elegant, Most Whimsical and Most Uniquely Campbell River. 

We have some very special events planned for the holidays in the Festival of Trees
Saturday, December 2 from 1:00pm to 4:00pm – the Midnight Shuttles Spinning and Weaving guild will host fiber art demonstrations in spinning, weaving and so much more. 
Saturday, December 9 from 12:00pm to 3:00pm – Chestnuts & Carols special event with carols, roasted chestnuts & fireside stories with Father Christmas.
