Lounsbury House, located at 316 Main Street in Ridgefield, will be holding its 18th biennial Tree Festival and Holiday Boutique from Nov. 17 to 19.

Every other year, the Women’s Committee, organizer of the event, transforms the historic venue into a winter wonderland of trees that are available for purchase and decorated by local organizations. Distinctive holiday gift items, particularly for the home, are also available.

There will be a Champagne Preview Party on Thursday, Nov. 16, with tickets costing $50 per person; reservations are required. The festival runs Friday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for seniors, and $3 for children.
