Get holiday greens and more at Arboretum sale, reception

The Arboretum Foundation’s beloved holiday sale returns to the Graham Visitors Center at the Washington Park Arboretum from 2 to 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 4, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5. Along with a selection of wreaths, swags, and fresh-cut greens, shoppers can find:



  • A greatly expanded selection of gifts from the Arboretum Shop vendors
  • Holiday cards handmade by the Natural Crafts Study Group
  • A gift-wrapping station
  • Seasonal refreshments, including mulled cider, hot cocoa, and bagged cookies
  • Live harp music on Friday from 4 to 6 p.m.


Also on Friday, from 6 to 7 p.m., there will be a reception and slide presentation to mark the official 75th anniversary of Washington Park Arboretum. A signature cocktail — a hot toddy made with honey from Arboretum beehives — will be served. The event is free and open to the public.
