Explore Museum of Coastal Carolina’s enchanting 4th Annual Festival of Trees from November 9 to December 31.

Explore the Museum of Coastal Carolina’s enchanting 4th Annual Festival of Trees from November 9 through December 31. Stroll through the museum at a leisurely pace, admire trees artfully decorated by businesses and nonprofits, and engage in friendly competition by voting for and bidding on your favorite trees.

Each visitor receives one ballot to vote for their favorite tree, and visitors who want to increase their preferred trees’ chances of winning can purchase additional ballots. Decorated trees are also silent auction items; all visitors are encouraged to bid, and the highest bidders will take possession of decorated trees once the festival concludes.
