39th Annual Festival of Trees

Some of Bucks County’s best artists and decorators come together to design lush, imaginative and meaningful holiday décor throughout the National Historic Landmark Home of Pearl S. Buck, open to the public for guided tours daily.

Within Pearl Buck's spectacularly beautiful stone farm house, room after room will overflow with the very best in interior designs for the holidays, artfully decorated trees and lovely vignettes crafted to celebrate the magic of the holiday season.

As Pearl was a social activist, caring deeply about many issues, we carry her activism forward in this event by also inviting local organization to create holiday décor with a message.

In total, 29 artists, organizations and community groups decorate the beloved author’s home, making it one of the region’s greatest annual holiday traditions.

Following the tour, guests may cast a vote for their favorite decorator through December 13th. The winner will be announced at the Community Open House Event on December 14th from 6-8 PM.

For more photos, here’s a visual tour of a previous Festival of Trees from Montgomery News.
