More than a dozen handmade centerpieces are featured in the Centerpiece Silent Auction. These one-of-a-kind designs are made by local florists, artists and crafters. All of the centerpieces can be bid on through silent auction during the Festival. Read the Centerpiece Silent Auction Guidelines for more information.
Centerpiece designers will receive four Festival of Trees general admission tickets and one Gala ticket for each entry. Designers will be listed in the Festival of Trees program, the special insert in The State Journal-Register, and on the Festival of Trees Recognition Wall located at Memorial Medical Center. Each centerpiece will be provided identification signage.
Super Set-Up will be held at the Orr Building on the Illinois State Fairgrounds, Saturday, Nov. 5 from noon to 4 p.m. All entries must be completed and delivered during this time.
