Parade of Trees

The Danvers Historical Society invites you to usher in the holiday season at Tapley Memorial Hall, 13 Page Street, Danvers. Open hours are below.

A 4’ tall gingerbread house with A cupcake shaped roof? An ice cream cone door? These are a few of the 16 “not your average” Gingerbread house designs you’ll see on our stage at the Danvers Historical Society 15th Annual Parade of Trees. Walk our peppermint path to Tapley Hall to view and purchase raffle tickets to win one of the beautiful trees or wreaths donated by various businesses and organizations. Buying raffle tickets and viewing displays can also be done online on Rally Up.

Start the holidays with this festive event, run by the Danvers Historical Society, supporting its education mission. $5 admission. Children under 15 are free. The hall is filled with creatively decorated faux trees and wreaths crafted and donated by local businesses, organizations, and families. All trees and wreaths will be raffled off and winners notified by phone on Sunday. Raffle tickets are 10 for $10, and you may place those 10 chances on various displays at Tapley Hall. Proceeds go to the Danvers Historical Society community outreach programs.
