The Historic Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens

7th Annual Festival of Trees


Mieke van Waveren, Jenny Garrigues & David Miller

The Festival of Trees is without a doubt the premier holiday event in the Palm Beaches. This year it will feature wonderful new additions and surprises. Our presenting sponsor Diamante Atelier will bring sparkle and excitement to the event now in it's seventh year.  Lead by Jenny Garrigues, Design Chair, the beautifully and sometimes whimsically decorated trees that are the work of over 30 guest decorators will fill the Gardens.  The Wonder of Words is this year's theme and poetry will serve as the muse for the trees.  Kevin Clark again shares his talent in creating the spectacular synchronized light and music show. We are fortunate to have guest performances by the talented music and dance groups of the Palm Beaches throughout the event and local students will be given the opportunity to showcase original poems they have written.  None of this happens without the support of many wonderful families, community partners and sponsors, dedicated chairs, committee members and very special volunteers who continue to help create this unique gift to the community.  Join us for one of our special evenings or for our community days.  Whatever you choose you will be lifted by the joy and spirit of the Gardens.
