The Festival of Trees is an annual holiday event hosted by the Octagon Center for the Arts. Each year over 1,000 people come to see the Octagon's Main Gallery transformed into a truly spectacular forest of festive trees and wreaths decorated by local businesses, organizations, groups and individuals. Approximately 70 trees and wreaths will be on display.
Please Note: We are not asking for donations of trees or wreaths this year. The trees and wreaths are for display only -- for the enjoyment of the Ames community and to showcase the artists, organizations, and businesses that are participating. There is a nominal fee to help cover the costs, such as electricity and promotion.
