Festival of the Wreaths


The 2nd Annual Festival of the Wreaths sponsored by the Arlington Heights Historical Society was a great success. We received wreaths submitted by individuals, community organizations, businesses and Village departments. During the Thanksgiving weekend many people visited the museum to view and bid on wreaths, listen to music and shop in our mini indoor farmers market.  The proceeds from the wreath sales will support the museum collection and projects. We would like to thank all our sponsors, wreath submitters and wreath purchasers for their support of this event.

The goal of this event is to promote community engagement and awareness of the Arlington Heights Historical Museum. We hope that all who participated in some manner will return to the museum during 2017 to enjoy some of the many assets and events available to the community.
