When is the 2015 Festival of Trees?

Opening Night is Tuesday, November 29, 2016 (see information below to purchase an invitation).  The Festival is open to the public from Wednesday, November 30 - Saturday, December 3, 2016  from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. each day.

Where does the money go that is raised during the Festival of Trees?

Every penny (100%) raised at Festival of Trees goes to help children at Primary Children's Hospital. 

One out of nine children who walk in the doors of Primary Children’s Hospital cannot afford to pay for their medical costs.  Primary Children’s charity care program ensures that every child receives the best medical care possible, regardless of race, religion, or ability to pay.  Last year, nearly $14.4 million charity care dollars were used to cover 9,269 charity care visits at Primary Children's Hospital.
