Thank you to all who participated in the 2018 Festival of Trees by setting up trees, viewing the amazing displays, and by attending the Night of Lights Kick-Off event! 2018 was our biggest year yet. We look forward to what 2019 will bring!

YWCA NorthEastern NY and the Schenectady County Historical Society invite you to visit the 2018 Festival of Trees. Over a thousand people came to last year’s Festival to enjoy the collection of lighted fir trees with decorations that are classic to creative and everything in between.   

The Festival will take place from Saturday, December 1 through Sunday, December 16, 2018. In addition, there will be a special kick-off event, the Night of Lights, on Friday, November 30, 2018 with light refreshments, music, and a first-look at all of the beautiful trees. Tickets are limited for the kick-off event!  

Trees will be on display at both the SCHS Museum at 32 Washington Avenue and YWCA NENY headquarters at 44 Washington Avenue.  

Hours:  Sunday to Saturday, opens at 10am*
