Both of these special events, are part of Hingham’s annual Christmas in the Square, and represent our biggest fundraisers for the year.

Last year’s Festival of Trees raised more than $12,000 to benefit the Friends of the Homeless of the South Shore. It also contributed a more than $6,000 to Hingham Women’s Club Scholarship Fund to help college-bound students.
