The Sixth Annual Merry Trees Exhibit

The Fredericksburg Area Museum (FAM) is pleased to announce the sixth annual Merry Trees exhibit. FAM’s gallery spaces will be filled with fifteen miniature trees decorated by the second-grade students at Hugh Mercer and Lafayette Elementary Schools. Each tree is inspired by a children’s book the students have read in the classroom.


FAM is excited to continue this partnership with Fredericksburg City Public Schools. This exhibition is a celebration of art, literature, the holiday season, and Fredericksburg’s elementary students. Merry Trees will be on display at the FAM (907 Princess Anne St, Fredericksburg, VA) from November 20th through December 28th, 2021.


We invite everyone young and old to come to the FREE Merry Trees Open House on Friday, December 3rd. From 5pm – 7:30pm, visitors will have an opportunity to see each class’s tree, participate in a family holiday I Spy game, and visit with Santa in the museum’s galleries.


As we continue to work to keep our community safe, attendees are required to wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status, and maintain social distancing.
