We're sorry. There are no announcements at this time.

Each year more than 150 theme wreaths are displayed through this weeklong silent auction that is one of the Carroll County Arts Council’s most significant fundraising events. Visitors experience a wonderland of creativity and generosity as they vote for their favorites and bid on those they would like to take home (or give as gifts!) in this spectacular event.

Wreaths and Holiday Art may be donated by businesses, civic / social organizations, schools, offices, families or individuals. There is no registration fee. Decorate your entry with a theme of your choice – creativity is encouraged! For businesses, incorporating your products or services into the theme in the form of gifts or gift cards will maximize your exposure in the community as you support CCAC. Your decorated wreath and/or holiday artwork is a donation to Carroll County Arts Council and will be priced by CCAC and auctioned at the Festival of Wreaths. All proceeds will benefit CCAC. Visit our website to see photos of past entries for ideas.



  • Wreaths do not need to be Christmas-themed…or even round – think outside the circle!
  • No live wreaths
  • Attach a sturdy hanging device to wall wreaths
  • Lights: Plug-in lights or battery lights can be used. If battery-operated lights are used, provide enough replacement batteries for the wreath to stay continuously lit for 10 days.
  • Securely attach all gift cards, decorations, and ornaments to the wreath.
  • Entries cannot require daily maintenance
