Extraordinarily decorated trees, wreaths and decorative displays have turned the Door County Maritime Museum into a winter wonderland during the Merry-Time Festival of Trees, running through Jan. 2. Many include gifts, and all are donated to the museum by community businesses and individuals. Each paid admission to the museum generates one free raffle ticket for a chance to win one of the many festive pieces, and visitors can purchase additional tickets for more chances to win.
Each child 17 and younger who’s accompanied by an adult will receive free admission to this event and to the DCMM every Sunday during the festival: Nov. 28; Dec. 5, 12, 19 and 26; and Jan. 2.
The festival will culminate with the annual Jingle Mixer Gala on Dec. 14. Wear your holiday best, and enjoy live music, auctions, catered hors d’oeuvres and an open bar while experiencing the museum at night. Tickets for the Jingle Mixer Gala are limited and will go on sale Nov. 15. Museum guests may bid on auction packages online.
