Antrim Festival of Trees is a free month-long event held annually at the James A. Tuttle Library on Main Street in Antrim, New Hampshire. Sponsored by the Antrim Historical Society and the friends of the James A. Tuttle Library, the Festival of Trees celebrates community by showcasing trees, wreaths and displays decorated by local organizations, families, schools and businesses. Every nook and cranny of the historic three-story Tuttle Library is decorated with holiday displays representing a myriad of traditions, themes, religions and artistic whimsy, together creating a dazzling exhibit that encompasses the diversity of interests of the greater Antrim community. Unlike other similarly named Festival of Tree events, Antrim’s is unique in that the trees, wreaths and decorations are not displayed for the purpose of sale. Rather, the elaborate decor remains on display for a full month, solely for the purpose of community enjoyment, free and open to all to participate in and enjoy. The original premise remains:
“To put a little sparkle in our holidays while celebrating community”.
The committee sincerely appreciates the support of the community and local organizations and businesses in making the event so successful. It would not be possible without the gracious hospitality of the James A. Tuttle Library and its staff and trustees and friends as well as the support of the Antrim Historical Society. The Antrim Festival of Trees remains committed to providing a free community event that is self-supporting and inclusive to Antrim and the greater community.
