The Brookings Arts Council presents the Festival of Trees 2018: Dachshund Through The Snow


The Brookings Arts Council is gearing up for a wondrous world of enchantment during Festival of Trees 2018: Dachshund Through The Snow. The much-anticipated Festival of Trees displays creatively decorated holiday trees sponsored by businesses, schools, and community organizations, inspired by this year’s theme of Dachshund Through The Snow.


The annual Festival of Trees is an important fundraiser for Brookings Arts Council —with the proceeds benefiting the educational programs that serve the Brookings area every year. For nearly three decades, the Festival of Trees has brought people together to marvel at the creative expressions of celebration for the holiday season from different points of view. As an added bonus, Festival of Trees also brings together school children, individuals, businesses and agencies to work together in decorating the trees before they are placed in the BAC for all to enjoy.


The deadline to participate in this year’s Festival of Trees is November 2nd, 2018. Registration forms can be found online at www.brookingsartscouncil.org, or can be completed in person at the Brookings Arts Council, 524 4th St. This event has become so very popular that space and trees are reserved quickly, and we anticipate this excitement and participation to be the same this year. To guarantee your tree, we encourage participants to register early!


The Festival of Trees will open on view to the public from Saturday, November 24, through Friday, December 22, 2018. The 32nd annual holiday event is expected to feature more than xx twinkling holiday trees, decked in colorful ornaments representing the beauty of all the wonderment, mystery and beauty that can be found around town during the Dachshund Through The Snow event and will be arranged throughout the BAC’s gallery.


For more information, please contact the Brookings Arts Council at 692-4177 or our website: www.brookingsartscouncil.org. The BAC is open Tuesday through Saturday noon to 5pm and is directly south of the Children’s Museum, 524 4th St.
