Decorator registration for the 20th Annual Festival of Wreaths is now OPEN!
It's hard to believe that our signature fundraising event, the Festival of Wreaths, will be celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. We invite you to help make it an extra-special event! All registrations must be received by Friday, November 10, 2017
The Festival of Wreaths is one of the most well-attended holiday events in Carroll County. Each year more than 150 donated theme wreaths are displayed through this weeklong silent auction and is one of the 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.
Registration is free and open to all businesses, clubs, families and individuals. If you wish to donate gift certificates or merchandise with a value of $100 or more, we will gladly provide a wreath created by a talented artist to accompany your donation that will acknowledge your generous gift.
NEW this year! In addition to our tradition of offering unique theme wreaths in our silent auction, we will also be including seasonal and holiday-inspired art and fine craft. We feel that this will add a new element to the festivities and allow greater participation from both artists as well as bidders.
Decorators and artists will be our guests for a special viewing on the big screen of Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker" performed by The Wiener Staatsballett with screenings at 11am OR 2pm on Saturday, December 2. Complimentary tickets will be given out when donations are dropped off.
Wreath Drop Off Dates: Nov. 18 and Nov. 20 between 10 am and 4 pm, and November 21 between 10 am and 7 pm.
Festival event dates: Nov. 24 to Dec. 3 from 10am to 7pm Daily, except for Closing Day - Sunday Dec. 3 - 10am to 4pm
