Festival of Trees


The Schenectady County Historical Society and the YWCA Northeastern-NY are pleased to present the 8th Annual Festival of Trees! The Festival will be held November 28 – December 14 and features a beautiful display of lit trees decorated by local organizations, businesses, and families.

This year’s Festival will include:

  • A tree contest – visitors will vote for their favorite trees in three categories
  • A tree raffle – take home a uniquely decorated tree!
  • An exhibit on the History of the Teddy Bear at the SCHS Museum
  • Musical performances by local musicians on weekends

Trees are displayed at both the Schenectady County Historical Society at 32 Washington Ave and the YWCA at 44 Washington Ave in Schenectady. One ticket is good for both locations and tickets can be purchased at either place.

Come join us in this festive community event! For more information about the Festival or to enter a tree, please click here for our 2014 FoT brochure or contact Kaitlin at exhibits@schenectadyhistorical.org and 518-374-0263.
