Tree Festival

Look up!

Celebrate our ecosystem’s giants at the Tree Festival on Sunday, September 24th. This all-day event features family friendly fun and opportunities to learn more about the nature that surrounds us.

As you wander through the gardens, gaze into the Woods Path canopy, don a pair of moth wings, and switch to “tree time” by adding your milestones along the growth rings of a tree.

Discover the lives of trees from seed to stump through conversations with Mt. Cuba Center’s Docents, Education staff and arborists as well as our partners: the Delaware Center for Horticulture, Bartlett Tree Experts – Wilmington, Delaware, and Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania.

Grab a coffee from our favorite espresso truck, Scission, while you peruse a selection of native trees and herbaceous perennials for sale by Redbud Native Plant Nursery.

The Flatland Drive Bluegrass Band will be the day’s live musical entertainment. Kick back, grab a bite to eat from one of our food trucks (Troops Barbecue & Catering and the Box Lunch), and play lawn games on the Main Lawn.

Tree Festival activities are included with general admission (Free for season pass holders and children under 6, $5 for children ages 6-17, and $10 for adults).
