Festival of Trees

450 W. Ohio St., Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center, Indianapolis, IN 46202


The Indiana Historical Society's (IHS's) popular Festival of Trees holiday exhibit now includes 80 beautifully themed trees, plus a special 30-foot show-stopper tree that guests will have to see to believe.

Visit the History Center to vote for your favorites and take part in holiday sing-alongs in the Cole Porter Room. Fans of scavenger hunts will enjoy searching for 10 pickle ornaments, known as the Weihnachtzgurke, or the Elf on the Shelf.

Throughout Festival of Trees, the History Center is open 10 am-5 pm, Tuesday through Saturday. In addition, it is open Sundays, 12-5 pm, and Tuesday nights until 8 pm. Twilight Tuesdays give guests the chance to enjoy live music from local talent, as well as the beauty of holiday lights at night.

Festival of Trees is included with admission to the History Center, which is $9 for adults, $8 for seniors and $5 for children, ages 5-17.

The History Center is closed Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.
