What is the Festival of Trees?

The Festival of Trees is an annual event and fundraiser hosted by the Oregon Coast Military Museum (OCMM) towards the last week of November. Trees and wreaths are sponsored and decorated by businesses and tree designers from the Oregon Coast (Florence/North Bend/Coos Bay) in unique themes with a variety of ornaments to be auctioned off at the event's Gala dinner. Designers and themes vary by year as new and old volunteers join in decorating the trees, bringing new ideas to the table or revising previously done themes. 

What are the Proceeds Used For?

All proceeds of the Festival of Trees help keep the doors of the Museum open to the public and future generations. Funds raised also assist in the creation of exhibits, the preservation of Artifacts and items within the Museum's collections, the procurement of supplies for operations, and operational expenses. 

The Festival of Trees accounts for over 25% of the Museum's yearly operating budget, making it one of the most vital fundraisers for the OCMM.

What Themes Have Appeared?

A wide variety of themes have appeared over the years of the event. Ranging from coastal & nature themed trees to candy & TV inspired trees, there is always a tree theme for every member of the family. For a full list of themes used or planning to be used, click HERE. (Link to be Developed)
