The Festival of Trees lights up Schenectady! Featuring 70+ artistically decorated fir trees, the Festival glows with the spirit of Christmas and the Solstice. Local artists, businesses, and non-profits have come together to turn the galleries of SCHS into a land of wintertide enchantment, and we warmly invite you to come stroll! When you stop in, be sure to vote for your top choices in 8 categories, including Cutest, Most Glamorous, and Most Creative trees!

The Festival of Trees is a fundraiser for the Schenectady County Historical Society. Admission is $8 for adults 13+. You can purchase tickets here in advance or buy them at the front desk when you arrive.
