Festival of Wreaths


Published on Nov 25, 2019


Enrich your holiday experience by taking in the festive and colorful sights and sounds of the season at the Polk County History Center. The holiday season is a time where the iconic building shines its brightest, as it is decorated inside and out with lights, a Christmas tree and locally-decorated wreaths.

The 9th annual Festival of Wreaths will feature more than 40 museum-quality wreaths, created through the talent and generosity of area businesses, organizations and individuals.

The wreaths will be on display until Thursday, Dec. 12 and are available for purchase through an on-line Silent Auction process. All proceeds benefit the History Center. View photographs of the wreaths and place your bid at www.polkhistorycenter.org. Take home a unique or elegant wreath from a wide selection of styles to embellish your door just in time for Christmas.

Opening Night – 5 to 7 p.m. Nov. 8

Opening night for the Festival of Wreaths will feature a special gift to our visitors – an encore performance by the Frostproof Middle-Senior High School Choral group. This talented group of young people will perform a-cappella from the second floor rotunda at 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. The performances are enriched by the architectural acoustics of the iconic 1908 building. The Choral group, under the direction of Jonathan Carter, have performed by invitation at New York City’s Carnegie Hall.
