Sixth Annual “Parade of Trees”

Trees will be on display December 1 – December 27, 2024

Celebrate with us! Decorate an artificial evergreen tree (provided by and displayed at the museum) highlighting Chenango County culture, history, and heritage. Inspiration may come from buildings, businesses, community scenes, festivals, landmarks, milestones, organizations, parks, people – anything that celebrates any aspect of Chenango County, past or present. (Chenango County themed submissions are encouraged, but not required.)

Parade Highlights

“People’s Choice” Tree Decorating Contest: Museum visitors to the Chenango County Historical Society (CCHS) can vote for their favorite tree by making coin and cash donations into the corresponding container, while virtual supporters can vote for their favorite tree by making an online donation. Whichever tree container accumulates the greatest total by the conclusion of the contest (4 pm on December 27, 2023) will be deemed the winner! The winning tree’s earnings will be split evenly between the Organization and CCHS. (Earnings from all other tree votes will support the mission of CCHS.)

Decorate your tree on the following days from 10 AM – 4 PM: November 25 or 26

(Special arrangements can be made to decorate a tree on November 27. Please call (607) 334-9227 for scheduling accommodations.) Please note that trees and tree locations are assigned at the discretion of CCHS.
