Morven's Festival of Trees is a juried collection of trees and mantles displayed throughout the museum's galleries, upstairs and down.  This year's theme invites visitors to tour the newly reimagined first floor galleries, featuring trees inspired by 18th through 20th century decor, and the second floor galleries where imagination runs free.

  • C. Raymond Davis & Sons
  • Contemporary Garden Club
  • Garden Club of Princeton
  • Homestead Princeton
  • Keris Christmas Shop and Tree Farm
  • McCarter Theater
  • Stony Brook Garden Club

Morven's Festival of Trees co-chairs are Carolyn and John Healey, Alex and Howie Powers, and Lisa and Michael Ullmann.

December highlights of this year's Festival include a Family Gingerbread House Workshop, Colonial Christmas Tea, Morning with Santa, and Pajama Storytime with Gennady Spirin.  Docents will be on hand throughout the galleries, however no formal tours are given during the Festival.
