Festival of Trees, Craft Show, and Other Favorite Holiday Events Return This November

Festival Of Trees Cropped

Pearl S. Buck International invites everyone to celebrate the holidays at our house. We are thrilled to once again offer our signature holiday traditions of Festival of Trees, Holiday Community Night, and the Holiday Craft Show.

The Holiday Craft Show has been a Bucks County tradition for almost three decades. Enjoy a unique shopping experience at this high-end craft show which offers jury-selected gifts, decorations, food, jewelry, apparel, and more from professional crafters, artists, and chefs. The Holiday Craft Show is the perfect place to find an array of amazing holiday gifts for your family and friends.

The Pearl S. Buck Volunteer Association produces this long-time holiday event, and proceeds go to support the humanitarian, cross-cultural, and educational work and mission of Pearl S. Buck International. The Holiday Craft Show will run from Friday, November 25-Sunday, December 4, 2022. Admission is $5.

Each year during the Annual Festival of Trees, the rooms of Pearl S. Buck’s iconic Bucks County stone farmhouse come alive with the glow of holiday decorations. The event showcases beautiful trees and vignettes designed by Bucks County’s best artists, decorators, and local community groups to convey the spirit of Pearl S. Buck’s legacy as an author, humanitarian, and activist. Festival of Trees remains one of the most unique and historic holiday traditions in the region.

This year Pearl S. Buck International is thrilled to treat guests to a new exhibit displayed throughout the Pearl S. Buck House of original artwork by renowned artist Anna Marie Magagna, created to illustrate Pearl S. Buck’s children’s book, Christmas Miniature. This beloved holiday event will run from Wednesday, November 16, 2022 – Sunday, January 8, 2023. We are asking that all tours be reserved ahead of time.
