Local tourist information and events.
November 13, 2017. SILVER CITY, NM. The Guadalupe Montessori School (GMS) will host the Festival of Trees for its 5th holiday season! This year’s festival will occupy the old Curious Kumquat building (111 E. College Ave.), in the heart of downtown Silver City from December 8-17. This community event is a fundraiser for the Guadalupe Montessori School, with proceeds supporting all aspects of the school’s operation, including tuition assistance and historic facilities preservation. The Festival of Trees has a rich and storied history in our town, having been produced in the past by Penny Park and the LDS Church. GMS is proud to carry forth the tradition of this beloved Silver City event.
The Festival of Trees is a celebration of the holiday season and the wonder of individual expression and creativity. Local artists, individuals, and organizations will decorate live Christmas trees and agave stalks, and all community members will have a chance to purchase the decorated and undecorated trees, as well as seasonal plants, high quality gifts made by local artisans, and homemade holiday baked goods. The diverse crew of decorators makes for a breathtaking presentation of trees, from traditional to whimsical.
