Morven Museum & Garden will host the Festival of Trees Holiday from November 27, 2019 to January 5, 2020, with beautiful trees and mantles on each floor of the Museum.

Princeton, NJ (Merxwire) – Morven Museum & Garden will host the 14th Festival of Trees this year, an annual highlight featuring a collection of trees and mantles collected by the jury, displayed on various floors of the museum. Morven invites everyone to participate in the Festival of Trees with local designers, artists, garden clubs, businesses and non-profit organizations to enjoy the holiday in a beautifully decorated and design-filled environment.

The Festival of Trees is a favorite traditional festival. Everyone enjoys the beautiful tree decorations in this festival, enjoy the snacks together, and enjoy this grateful season. Celebrating this season with beautiful decorations, it is very happy and warm.

“This year we have expanded the activities during the Festival to include two Thursday evenings with Beth Allan giving special Morven After Dark tours, tea with the Governor’s Girls, and after last year’s successful gingerbread house-making, adults have their very own session, complete with adult refreshments,” says the Executive Director of Morven Museum & Garden Jill Barry. “We are thrilled to once again invite families to come dressed in their pajamas for our evening with Mrs. Claus. There is something for everyone to enjoy here throughout the season.”

About Morven Museum & Garden

For more than 200 years Morven has played a role in the history of New Jersey and the nation. Originally part of a 5,500-acre tract purchased from William Penn in 1701 by the Stockton family, it is the home of Richard Stockton, a Signer of the Declaration of Independence. As well as serving as a Stockton homestead for several generations into the 20th century, Morven was home to the families of Robert Wood “The General” Johnson Jr., and eventually five New Jersey governors, three generations of enslaved families, respective domestic workers, and staff. Morven Museum & Garden showcases the rich cultural heritage of the Garden State through regular exhibitions, educational programs, and special events.
