Festival of Trees Celebration - Lead

Dec 2, 2017 1:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Santa is coming to town during the 2017 Festival of Trees Vintage Holiday Celebration at Lead's Historic Homestake Opera House, the oldest celebration of its kind in the Black Hills.

Enjoy free cocoa, hot apple cider, cookies as you admire beautifully decorated Christmas trees, wreaths and unique vintage items — all donated by HHOH supporters from the Northern Hills communities of Lead, Deadwood, Sturgis, Whitewood, and Spearfish. 

Special to the event this year is the newly restored lower walls of the interior of the theater. The public is invited to explore the new Interpretive Exhibit on the second floor that showcases the entire history of the Opera House with historic items and archival imagery and film.

Admission is by donation to the HHOH, or donation of pet food and necessities for the Twin City Animal Shelter of Lead and Deadwood, or nonperishable food items to stock the Lord’s Cupboard Food Pantry in Lead.
