The City of Aiken Visitors Center & Train Museum is seeking participants for its Fourth Annual Festival of Trees to be held, Friday, December 4th – Saturday, January 2nd (tree lighting on Friday, December 4th at 4pm).

Each December, local businesses and organizations decorate holiday trees and display them at the City of Aiken Visitors Center & Train Museum at 406 Park Ave SE, Aiken. Visitors vote on their favorite tree, with the winner receiving a holiday-themed gift basket and their tree featured in an advertisement in the Aiken Standard.

Participation is a great way for businesses and groups to reach new audiences. Last December alone, the City of Aiken Visitors Center & Train Museum had 1,800 visitors come through our door!

There is no cost to participate, but space is offered on a first come, first serve basis. If you would like to display a tree, please complete the attached form by Nov. 18th and submit by email to Hampton C. Wayt.
