Thank you to all who participated in the 2019 Festival of Trees by sponsoring a tree, visiting the displays, and/or attending the Night of Lights! All proceeds were split between YWCA NorthEastern NY and the Schenectady County Historical Society to support our programming and services. We look forward to seeing you during the 2020 Holiday Season!


YWCA NorthEastern NY and the Schenectady County Historical Society invite you to visit the 2019 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 7 through Sunday, December 22, 2019. In addition, there will be a special kick-off event, the Night of Lights, on Friday, December 6, 2019 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, 10am – 5pm

Come be a part of our annual holiday event!
