Trees & Traditions

large decorated Christmas tree

We had a great time at our 38th Annual Trees & Traditions Fundraising Gala! Singer Jonathan Karrant ( was amazing. The food, by Hillcrest Catering, was exceptional. Wine and coffee from Sicilia Vineyards and Clark Avenue Coffee rounded out the evening. To all of you who joined us, I hope you had a wonderful evening. We’re already planning for next year, so mark your calendar for December 1, 2018!

Thank you to our 2017 Corporate Sponsors:

Pig Roast

We are not holding a Pig Roast in 2017. Check back next Spring for the 2018 date.

Our Pig Roast is all about the pig! We start roasting at 7am behind Ettl Hall. Timed perfectly so when the pig is done, it is carved and served - you won't get fresher pork anywhere in Sutter County! We keep the rest of the menu simple, just a few sides and desserts. Your ticket also includes 2 drinks. Live music makes it a party, all we need is you and your friends to come join us!


Adult Programs

We offer a wide variety of presentations, lectures, book signings, and exhibit receptions throughout the year. If you have suggestions for future programs, please let us know!

Children's Programs

Our children's programs are educational in nature, with a lot of fun thrown in! They are usually structured to include some instructional time, a craft or activity related to the topic, and home-made cookies to finish it off. We do annual programs in the spring, summer, and in December. We hope to increase our children's offerings in the near future, so keep an eye on this space!
