About Our Event


Trees and wreaths, decorated by local designers, will be on display throughout the Museum of Commerce's turn-of-the-century street scene, creating a winter wonderland from days gone by in Historic Pensacola Village. 

Each tree and wreath on display will be available for purchase or online auction bidding with proceeds supporting the WSRE-TV Foundation in support of the public television programs you love!

Come catch the holiday spirit by kicking off Winterfest Pensacola with WSRE.

Admission is free!
