Festival of Trees


Trees at the Festival

Trees and wreaths are provided by the Festival of Trees and there is no fee to design. For consistency, no other trees or wreaths can be used. You are responsible for providing all materials used to decorate the item(s).

6½' Tree    4' Tree   30" Wreath

The decorated items will be selected by sponsors during the Virtual Festival of Trees Lottery, Saturday, November 14, 2020.

Contracts are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis and must be received by Oct. 19. If you are unable to decorate your item, notify the Festival of Trees office as soon as possible so another designer can be secured. Failure to do so may result in you not being able to be a designer in the future.
