What is the Festival of Wreaths?

The Festival of Wreaths is an annual fundraiser organized by the Aurora Museum Foundation and Aurora History Museum and Historic Sites.

What Do Donations Fund?

This year's proceeds will go towards the restoration and installation of Aurora's iconic Cactus Motel sign, that once graced Colfax Avenue. The sign's permanent home will be in the Ruth Fountain Gallery with Trolley Trailer #610. 
In addition, a portion of the funding will go to support the museum's education programs and community events.
