ZANESVILLE, Oh – It’s that time of year again! The Zanesville-Muskingum County Chamber of Commerce decorates hallways and prepares for the 30th Annual Tree Festival.
The auction is scheduled for Friday December 2 and registration is open until Wednesday November 18.
The live, in-person event will take place at the Zanesville-Muskingum County Welcome Center and will feature all types of festive pieces, as well as promotional items such as gift cards and certificates from local businesses on which bid.
All you need to do is complete the online entry form, decorate as you wish, and celebrate the auction’s 30th anniversary with a bit of festive fun on the first Friday of December.
“We are very excited about this. People will be able to see over 200 entries, ranging from 7.5-foot trees to mini trees. We will have a plethora of wreaths and stockings and other Christmas and holiday related decorations,” said Zanesville-Muskingum County Chamber of Commerce President Dana Matz.
If you cannot attend the auction in person, you will be able to listen live on AM 1240 and have the option of calling in to bid on any of the items for sale.
The picking of auction items will take place the following day, Saturday, December 3, as well as the following Monday, with all funds raised benefiting local businesses and the Chamber of Commerce.
“It helps fund our operations, which allows us to help our businesses with our training programs, our cost reduction programs, all the things that chambers do to support businesses in the community. And every day, whether it’s one of us or our computers helping our businesses, we’re connecting business to business, connecting business to customers, connecting business to government,” Matz explained.
