Tread of Pioneers Museum's Festival of Trees

11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Date & Time

11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Don't miss the 28th Annual Festival of Trees from Nov. 11 - Nov. 26 (open Tuesday-Saturday, 11am-5pm; closed Thanksgiving) at the Tread of Pioneers Museum. Yampa Valley Bank and Steamboat Ace Hardware are again showing their devotion to the museum and our heritage by generously underwriting all of the costs for this fundraising event.

This family-focused, pre-holiday tradition transforms the museum into a sparkling forest of holiday trees uniquely decorated by creative local organizations, businesses, and individuals. The Festival is the museum's primary fundraising event, and proceeds support museum preservation and educational activities.

We hope to have over 25 trees this year. We would like to thank all of the decorators and local business sponsors who make this event possible. Nearly 50 groups, organizations, schools, and businesses, along with the museum's volunteer corps, come together to make this a true community event.

The Festival is a great opportunity for families to take their holiday photos in the trees for Christmas cards or to send to the grandparents. While you're here, vote for your favorite tree or find the golden keys hidden in the trees.

All local families are invited to Pioneer Christmas Story-time for Kids on Saturday, Nov. 19 at 10:00am and 1:00pm. You can also get your holiday shopping done early in the one-of-a-kind Museum Store where you'll find locally-made products, historical photographs, books, and toys that will delight everyone on your holiday shopping list.

With the generosity of our sponsors, all Festival of Trees events are FREE to all Routt County residents; regular admission prices for out-of-town visitors. Don't miss the light and magic of the Festival of Trees!
