Festival of Trees

A Silver Anniversary Celebration

In 2018, we present the 25th Annual Festival of Trees! A year-long celebration – including several special events – celebrates this important anniversary! Christmas in July for donors and volunteers, a Scavenger Hunt offering $2,000 worth of prizes, a Silver Anniversary Gala, an action packed opening weekend, and a record breaking $10,000 raffle are all part of the 2018 Festival of Trees. This year also features a third week to make the Festival a part of your holiday season!
