Traditions of Troy

celebrating past and future traditions 

The Past: The Holiday Greens Show
presented by the Van Rensselaer Garden Club 

The 66th Annual Holiday Greens Show at the Hart Cluett Museum runs Thursday, December 1 through Sunday, December 4, 2022.


This year's theme is"The Gilded Age in the Marble House on Second Street." Using all fresh seasonal greens and gilded age era flowers, the members of the Van Rensselaer Garden Club decorate the fourtreen rooms of the 1827 Federal style home to showcase the amazing architecture and period rooms of the Gilded Age that belonged to the Hart and Cluett families of Troy, New York. This beloved tradition is the event in which the Victorian Stroll was born out of.
