The Muskegon Museum of Art’s annual holiday event, the Festival of Trees made some adjustments last year. In consideration of community health, the MMA staff and FOT volunteer committee decided to spread the holiday spirit into downtown. The MMA, collaborating with downtown businesses and attractions, organized a new version of the annual holiday event – Festival of Wreaths – a wreath walk event that people could enjoy from the sidewalk or street from November 24 through December 5, 2021.
About Festival of Wreaths
Before the event, MMA Assistant Director Catherine Mott commented, “The Festival of Wreaths will work two-fold, inspiring the holiday spirit and encouraging people to walk and explore downtown Muskegon.” Each participating downtown business or organization hosted a designer wreath provided by the MMA in a window facing the street or sidewalk from November 24-December 5. The MMA also presented a small gallery display of decor during the run of the Festival.
A Walking Guide with the location of all the wreaths was available at the Muskegon Museum of Art Store and at participating businesses starting November 24.
2020 ONLINE WALKING GUIDE with the location of all the wreaths was available at the Muskegon Museum of Art Store and at the participating venues last year.
