A Central Florida holiday tradition Festival of Trees: “Enchanted Holidays”

One of Central Florida’s most beloved traditions, Festival of Trees, signals the arrival of the holiday season and returns to spread joy and cheer from November 11-19, 2023. 

Presented by the Council of 101, this year’s event celebrates the magic and memories of the holiday season with its new theme, “Enchanted Holidays.”

As guests make their way through the museum, they’ll be transported to a world of enchanted elegance and magical wonder as they take in the sites around them. Festival of Trees: “Enchanted Holidays” honors the magic created when the Central Florida Community comes together to support one another and the Orlando Museum of Art.

“Festival of Trees has become part of the fabric of the holidays in Central Florida,” said Lisa Sheppard, President of the Council of 101. “We are thankful to be a part of the annual traditions for many people in the community. We hope to spread joy while supporting the good cause of the arts and education at the Orlando Museum of Art.”

During Festival of Trees, visitors can see more than 40 designer-inspired decorated trees, all available for purchase, as well as exceptional gingerbread houses, wreaths and more. There will be a holiday shopping experience, as well as a raffle including holiday table settings and live entertainment.

A variety of special events, including Breakfast with Santa, The Ugly Sweater Fun Day and a children’s Reindeer Romp party will add a special holiday touch to this year’s Festival of Trees. The event will continue its annual Salute to Seniors and new this year, a day to recognize active and retired military members.

Events presented by Council of 101, including Festival of Trees, have raised more than $14 million over the years, benefiting the Orlando Museum of Art’s educational and life-long learning programs. These programs reach deep into the community by helping many that are from different walks of life, ages, and income groups.
