You may come view all of the festive items in person at Liberty Hall from Monday, November 30 through Sunday, December 6. Due to Covid guidelines, we are limiting the number of viewers per hour and are required to track the folks visiting. Therefore, we ask that you sign up in advance for a time slot.

Sign Up Here

As in years past, we suggest a donation of $5 per person for viewing. To limit the amount of person-to-person contact, we recommend that you make your donation in advance on this site. Thanks!

Note: We strongly recommend that you arrive within the first 30 minutes of your scheduled viewing time and limit your viewing time to 30 minutes or less. Please reserve a time for EACH person attending with you (so that we can keep a comprehensive list of visitors) regardless if they have email or not. Delays are possible as we will be doing temperature checks and ensuring that folks social distance within the theater. Remember your mask. Check our Facebook page for best times for walk-ins.



Mitten Tree Adoption

Each year, the Festival of Trees showcases a "Mitten Tree" with the wishes of families in need in your area. Gift cards are in great need and you may donate now on this site. Or if you prefer a more personalized approach, come down to Liberty Hall during viewing hours to pick out your "mitten" that will have the wishes, including ages and sizes of family members, so you may personally shop for your adopted family. Instructions, restrictions and due date will be provided so you can shop for your neighbors in need. 

Please go to Silent Auction Bidding to choose your gift card amount and purchase. 

Thank you.
