Jingle Tree


The holiday season is a magical time at HMNS Sugar Land with one of Fort Bend’s most anticipated holiday traditions—Jingle Tree, presented by Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital. The annual event features a showcase of beautifully decorated trees and décor, up for bid in a week long, online silent auction. Jingle Tree takes place November 12-18 and the Honorary Chairs are long time museum supporters and Fort Bend residents, Phillip and Elizabeth Butler.

This special community celebration allows us to dedicate funding to support the Museum and to expand access to underserved communities and deserving local non-profit organizations.  Proceeds enable expansion of accessibility programming, museum expert interactions, virtual and interactive demonstrations and more.

From the inaugural Tree Lighting, to exclusive limited-capacity VIP Experiences, and culminating in the countdown at the Festive Finale, join us and decorate the holidays with Natural Science!
