Mission Statement

The Festival of Trees began in 1994 to fund the restoration of the Tenney Gatehouse. It is a magical Holiday event held annually by the Festival of Trees, Inc., a private non-profit organization. The Festival is dedicated to the richness and history of our community by developing partnerships with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the communities and organizations of the Merrimack Valley. The proceeds from the Festival of Trees provide funding to preserve the heritage and the monuments that make Methuen and the communities of the Merrimack Valley unique.
