Every year over 700 trees are gathered into the South Towne Expo Center. Surrounded by wreaths, gingerbread houses, sweet shoppes and holiday dancers, there is nothing that can get you into the Christmas spirit quite like the Festival Trees.
The event takes place November 28- December 1 from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm. The event is $5 per adult and $3 per child. The Festival of Trees raises money for Primary Children’s Hospital. The festival has taken place since 1971 and has raised over $30.8 million since it first began.
The Opening Night Auction is November 27, 2012; all the trees are put up for auction that night. Any tree not purchased is put up for sale during the rest of the week.
Be a part of this community tradition and capture the Holiday spirit.
