The annual Festival of Wreaths is back this year to inspire the holiday spirit and encourage people to explore Downtown Muskegon during the holiday season from November 22 – December 11!


Wreath Walk  |  November 22 – December 11

The Muskegon Museum of Art has partnered with Downtown Muskegon businesses and organizations to display wreaths (designed by local artists and designers) in their windows from November 22 – December 11.

Designer wreaths in downtown businesses will be available to bid on during Festival of Wreaths in an online auction. Proceeds from wreath sponsorships and auction purchases will contribute important funds toward MMA programs.

Find all wreaths with the Wreath Walk Map, which features a map of all wreath locations. Printed copies can be found at the Muskegon Museum of Art Store and at participating businesses.
