Join the Holiday Center for the Arts Logo.png

Marco Island Center for the Arts is getting in the holiday spirit and wants to invite you to make our annual festivities part of your celebration. The Eighth Annual Festival of Trees will feature uniquely themed small trees decorated by organizations and members of our community. The Festival of Trees entries are then auctioned through a silent auction starting November 30, 2021 in the Lauritzen gallery. If you are looking for a little tree to add to your holiday décor, you won’t want to miss this opportunity.

Additionally, the Art Center will host its first outdoor tree lighting ceremony to open the Festival of Trees and holiday season. The Art Center invites you to join us at 5:30 PM to enjoy a festive libation and tour the Festival of Trees. The tree lighting ceremony will take place at 6:00 PM on November 30. The Art Center’s new Christmas tree was generously donated by George and Mary Shoenberger.

Marco Island Center for the Arts is also a mail drop for children’s letters to Santa this season and as an added bonus, he has agreed to send each of the children a special video response to their letters. The Santa mailbox will remain in the lobby of the Art Center for your child to drop off their letters until December 20 at 4:00 PM. Get your letter to Santa form online at If you are not able to physically drop the letter off at the Art Center at 1010 Winterberry Drive, Marco Island, we will accept the letters at and put those in the mailbox for you.
