The Holiday Festival & Tree Lighting for the 11th Annual Festival of Trees
This year, our Christmas Festival on Monday, November 14th will be the kick-off for the 11th Annual Festival of Trees. There will be wonderful music by talented local performers and a visit from Santa (free pictures to performance ticket holders!) to remind you that Christmas is coming soon. The Grand Hall will be filled with beautiful Christmas trees decorated by local citizens, organizations, groups and businesses. You can support the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center’s fundraising efforts by bidding on your favorite themed tree in our silent auction. The auction will close at 5pm after the Sunday performance of The Living Christmas Tree, December 4th. Be the highest bidder and take your tree home for the holidays!
What better time to start a family tradition than during the holidays? Come share in the joys of the season in the 28th annual production of the Living Christmas Tree, a Glades holiday classic! Come early Sunday afternoon for free pictures with Santa in the lobby!

Daniel Kelly/Rakonto - The Gift that Keeps on Giving
In celebration of our 35th Anniversary season, and in partnership with South Arts
and the National Endowment for the Arts, the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center is proud
to present this special concert of a newly commissioned work by pianist and composer
Daniel Kelly. In this unique concert, recorded interviews with community members and
an original musical score are interwoven to tell the story of the Glades and the Dolly
Hand. One local guest musician will take the stage alongside Kelly and his 5-piece
ensemble, making this an evening you won’t want to miss! Come and celebrate our 35th
year of providing the Glades with cultural arts programming and learn how we have
become “The Gift that Keeps on Giving”.
