What is the Festival of Trees ?

The Oregon Coast Military Museum's Festival of Trees is an annual event which takes place around Thanksgiving. It is the largest fundraiser for the Oregon Coast Military Museum. Many talented people from the Oregon Middle Coast (Florence/North Bend/Coos Bay) come together and  create amazing Christmas Trees and Wreaths. Approximately seventy trees and twenty wreaths are decorated every year based on a theme for each tree.
