The public Festival of Trees is a Christmas celebration of creativity and community pride. The Festival of Trees is an event where local artists, individuals and organizations decorate live Christmas trees to benefit the Guadalupe Montessori School. The diverse crew of decorators makes for a breath taking presentation of trees from traditional to whimsical. All decorated trees are for sale at the festival, and are delivered to local buyers with ornaments intact! The Festival has a long history in Silver City and was organized in the past by the Mormon Church and Penny Park. This is Guadalupe Montessori school's third year creating the event.
The year’s festival featured a wider variety of live trees and plants for sale than ever before, including fruit trees, pines, cypress, spruce, juniper, rosemary, poinsettias and more. Locally made gifts and ornaments will be available, gingerbread houses, as well as holiday cards, handcrafted soaps and herbal products from the Guadalupe Montessori School garden. Also featured is the book Milpa: From Seed to Salsa, a book written by Phil and Kathy Dahl-Bredine, who are the founders of Guadalupe Montessori School. This is a bilingual book featuring the recipes and food traditions of Oaxaca, Mexico.
This event is Guadalupe Montessori School's primary fundraiser and supports all aspects of the school which has been serving the children and families of Grant County for 36 years.
