The 10th Annual Granville Festival of Trees at Granville Museum features 20 beautifully decorated trees featuring this year's theme of "Christmas Memories in a Hallmark Movie
Town." The trees have been decorated by clubs and individuals in Jackson, Putnam, Smith and Wilson Counties. Each tree has its own special theme, and this year, each tree is
displayed in an individual partitioned setting allowing for more decorative features.
For many years, the Putnam County Master Gardeners have been a great supporter of Historic Granville, and this year's tree is extremely special in that they have taken the garden theme to a new level. The Master Gardeners played an instrumental role in the creative concept and establishment of the Pauline Johnson Cottage Garden which is enjoyed year-round by visitors to Granville.
The Festival of Trees is part of the Granville Town Tour and is open Wednesday through Friday 12:00 - 3:00 PM and Saturday 12:00 - 5:00 PM. Tickets which include all Christmas displays and attractions are $7.00 per person. In addition to the Festival of Trees, visitors will enjoy the Christmas Characters on Parade, a collection of approximately 150 hand-painted characters and Christmas tours of the Historic Home which is decorated in a grand fashion. Displayed at several locations, the Antique Toy Show entitled "Toy Chests of our Past" will bring back memories of childhood and feature toys from the decades.
The Sutton Ole Time Music Hour hosts Christmas Bluegrass Dinner Shows each Saturday night. Tickets are $25 which includes a delicious holiday meal and musical performance. Reservations are required and tickets may be purchased at www.granvilletn.com or by calling 931-653-4151.
