TreeFest begins with Christmas tree growers who donate over a hundred live trees to be trimmed. Then, hundreds of people – from community volunteers and youth groups, to florists and garden clubs set up and decorate the rooms and trees which are each sponsored by an area business or individual.
Local entertainment is provided by school choirs, dance groups and folk musicians performing in front of a seasonal mural. Visitors can start their Christmas shopping with the dozens of professional craft artisans. Don’t miss the gingerbread house contest and a special Chinese auction. At the conclusion, the trees are donated to area families in need, as identified by local social service agencies.
