Christmas Tree Festival Signup

We provide the trees and wreaths; you do the decorating! All items are auctioned to benefit the programs of the Women’s Health Resource Library – including Incredible Edible Milbridge and the new Milbridge Commons!

Here’s how it works!

  1. Signup to participate. Tell us if you want to adopt and decorate one of our tabletop-size live fir trees or balsam wreaths or if you’d like to imagine your own creation. Our goal is to have over 50 entries!
  2. Pick up your tree or wreath from the WHRL parking lot in mid-November. We’ll let you know when they’re ready for pickup. Some folks prefer to dig up and pot their own trees or make their own wreaths – that’s also okay!
  3. Decorate your item. Be creative! Click here to see some of last year’s items. Designs tend to range from the elegant to the beautifully whimsical, but all are uniquely special trees and wreaths. Make your tree special!
  4. Drop off your item at the Schooner Gallery on Thursday, December 5th from Noon to 5pm or on Friday December 6th from 8am to 1pm, and we’ll take it from there.

The Christmas Tree Festival preview party will be on Friday, December 6th from 5-7pm. Join us for music and holiday treats. We’ll open again on Saturday, December 7th from 9am to 5pm. Many in a Raffle-Style Auction, others will be offered in a silent auction. The event is part of Milbridge’s larger event, “Christmas on Main Street”.


Sign up to decorate a tree/wreath or to imagine own creation.
