Duluth Festival of Trees sponsored by

The Duluth Historical Society



Hello to our Duluth Friends,

The Christmas time celebration is just around the corner.

We have again joined with the Southeastern Railway Museum for our second annual “Duluth Festival of Trees”.  It was a great success last year and was visited by thousands of visitors as well as Fox News TV.  It also aired on Good Day Atlanta.  It was great exposure for Duluth.  For more than six weeks, it will spotlight your business and the Museum’s extensive facilities just south of downtown.  It will bring this uniquely festive holiday touch to this local landmark.

For a small donation of $100.00, you can sponsor a tree for the full season, decorating it to your liking.  Thousands of guests from Gwinnett, across Georgia and around the region will enjoy your tree and identify your business as a support of our organization and our partner, the Southeastern Railway Museum.  In addition to your name on your tree, your business will be identified as a sponsor on a banner at the entrance to the Museum.

Guests will be encouraged to vote for their favorite tree by placing donations in a box by your tree.  The tree that attracts the most donations will win “Peoples’ Choice” award.  Officials of both organizations will vote for “Best of Show”.

Please  e-mail or call us and we will send you your vendor package.  You will need to fill and print out the 2 forms listed below. We need to have applications submitted as soon as possible. Contact:  Nancy Sturgis, Secretary  678-365-1641  secretary@duluthhistotrical.org or Candace Morgan, President  770-403-1795

New Program

Walk Into History - aka Duluth History Brick Program. Duluth is changing. Duluth is growing.  Duluth is moving onward and forward.  You are what makes Duluth what it is today, and may be one who has contributed and participated in the changing scene. Therefore your hard work, your commitment, your history is important to our future generations for them to know you, remember you, and be encouraged to follow in your footsteps! It started generations ago and little has been done to recognize those who have gone before us. But it is not too late to do so!  With your help we can bring to light those in your family who have made a difference in Duluth.  Because people are what Duluth is all about, we want to include each one of you.  - see full information on the Duluth History Brick Program and downloadable forms Here.
