The Festival Of Trees

Since 1986, the Festival of Trees has been the signature event to kick off the holidays in Central Florida. It is enjoyed by more than 20,000 people each November when the Orlando Museum of Art is transformed into a wonderland of sparkling trees, festive holiday decorations, and gift boutiques. Part of the magic of the ten-day extravaganza is that each day is filled with unique daily entertainment and special events including the Opening Night Gala, the highly popular and family-friendly Reindeer Romp, choral and ballet presentations, musical interludes and visits by Santa Claus to name a few. The Festival of Trees is Council of 101’s gift to the community while raising funds to support the Museum.

Corporate Lease Program

The Council of 101 initiated the Corporate Lease Program in 1974 with a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. American fine art prints by 20th century masters were purchased and gifted to the Museum forming the basis of the Contemporary American Graphics Collection. These prints are available for lease to businesses in Central Florida at a fraction of the cost of purchasing their own. Lease fees enable the Council of 101 to purchase new prints annually for the Museum.
