Admire more than 30 fancifully decorated Holiday Trees throughout the Concord Museum inspired by favorites from children’s literature, contemporary and classic. The focus on children’s literature makes the Concord Museums’ Family Trees beloved and special among the many holiday events in Greater Boston. Each tree serves as a canvas for the artistic creations of a dedicated team of volunteer decorators. Inspired by the storyline, the illustrations, the characters or setting of a particular book, the decorators let their imaginations take flight.
Renowned children's book illustrator Jerry Pinkney will serve as this year's Honorary Chair. Pinkney has illustrated over 100 titles and is the recipient of the Caldecott Medal and five Caldecott Honors for children's literature. (A tree inspired by Pinkney’s" The Grasshopper and the Ants" will be featured)
During this benefit event, admission is $15 adults, $10 seniors, $6 children (4–18); children under 4 and Members Free. Family Trees admission includes all of the Museum galleries and special exhibitions. Hide
