The Eastport Arts Center’s 9th Annual Festival of Trees, a silent auction of lovingly decorated table-top trees which benefits the center’s programming, will take place on Saturday, December 8 from 4:30-5:30 pm. Join us  to wander through the magical forest of sparkling trees while nibbling festive treats passed by Girl Scout Troop 1981 from Perry and enjoying live music played by arts center enthusiasts Wren Fraser and Siobhan Duffy.

This holiday highlight auction keeps the lights burning with programming to brighten the long Eastport winter. It has been said that some who go away in the winter are sorry they miss this festive event. The Eastport Arts Center is at 36 Washington Street, Eastport and is handicapped-accessible. For more information please email margedhigginson11@gmail.com or call the arts center at (207) 853-4650.
