Registration open for Festival of Wreaths

Online registration is now open for the Carroll County Arts Council's largest fundraiser of the year, the Festival of Wreaths. Decorators must register by Nov. 15 in order to participate in the popular holiday event.

Wreath decorators are known for coming up with extraordinary engineering and artistry in their submissions, said Sandy Oxx, executive director of the Carroll County Arts Council


"After doing this event for 15 years, I'm always certain that all of the clever ideas have been used," said Oxx. "But, Carroll County never fails to surprise and delight us with their innovative wreaths."

Oxx said other communities have attempted to copy the event.


"We're flattered," said Oxx. "However, we're very proud that no other wreath display even touches ours. Carroll County decorators have always gone above and beyond to submit extraordinary creations that bring in high bids for the Arts Council."

Our visitors have come to expect very high standards, she said. The public will bid on the wreaths in a silent auction and the highest bidder will be awarded. Awards will be presented to decorators in a variety of categories.
