Festival of Trees


Memorial's Festival of Trees, the premier holiday event in central Illinois, would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. Since 1989, the Festival has raised more than $4.6 million to assist Memorial Medical Center with its mission to improve the health of the people and communities we serve.

Festival of Trees sponsors receive benefits based upon their sponsorship level - many of our sponsors receive a beautifully decorated tree and/or wreath on display at the Festival. Sponsors make their selection during the Festival of Trees Gala. The trees and wreaths, along with sponsor signage, are displayed throughout the entire Festival. Selected items are delivered to sponsors after the nine-day event concludes.
