The Magic of Christmas at
Wyatt Heritage Properties


Christmas Trees Through the Ages Exhibit at Lefurgey

Culture Summerside, the arts, heritage and culture department of the City of Summerside, has once again transformed the beautiful historic Lefurgey Cultural Centre into an evergreen forest for the exhibit, The Magic of Christmas at Wyatt Heritage Properties: Christmas Trees Though the Ages.

The Christmas tree is one of the central traditions of Christmas. While its story of origin dates back centuries, fashion designers are forever influencing new trends for the festive evergreen. The annual exhibit is added to each year to expand upon the story and the latest fashion.

The trees, decorated by Shelley Campbell of Tyne Valley, are decked according to the trends and happenings of various time periods. Each tree tells its own story. A stroll through the exhibit is a way to enjoy the wonder of changing styles without incurring the costs. The exhibit is designed for all ages.


The first opportunity to see the exhibit will be on Friday, December 2nd following the Summerside Santa Claus Parade. The exhibit will then open daily on Monday, December 5th through to Saturday, December 17th. The hours for Monday through Friday are 10 am to 5 pm. The hours on Saturday, December 10th and 17th will be 3 pm to 8 pm in conjunction with the Yuletide Village in Memorial Square. The dates of December 14th and 15th will be set aside for school groups. Closed on Sundays, and Saturday, December 3rd. Admission is a donation of give what you can. No registration required.
