Festival of Trees Luncheon

November 13, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

Welcome to the 2019 Festival of Trees! The Museum of Arts & Sciences is so excited to be celebrating the 33rd Anniversary of this important annual fundraiser. With the generous support of the people and businesses of this community, we can continue our mission of providing dynamic cultural and educational opportunities here in Middle Georgia.

The luncheon begins the festival with a gourmet meal created by chefs Natalia Del Basso Orsini, Nancy Shurling, and Claire Smith. During the luncheon, visitors will be dazzled with a showing of the latest in holiday fashions and décor by Barney & Stella, Previews Interiors and Antiques, and Sorella. Attendees will also be able to preview and shop in the Sugar Plum Shop. This year’s Sugar Plum Shop will offer the gourmet goodies visitors have come to love, plus the Museum’s own “Museum Made” handmade gifts and decor. The day’s events will begin at 12 p.m.

The cost of admission is $75 per person, and reservations can be made by calling the museum at 478-477-3232.
