What is the Festival of Trees?

The Festival of Trees is a free event focused on bringing the community together to cherish a time of giving and charity. This event raises funds for local charities focused on providing holiday cheer to families, children and seniors who otherwise cannot afford it.

This 10-day event showcases dazzling, breath taking, show stopping trees, sponsored and decorated by our community members that will be on display for viewing.   Vote for your favourite and if you choose to, place a bid so you can enjoy this work of art all through the holiday season.

Hold on to your stockings because there is more!  Be sure to check out the Holiday Market and get yourself a gift and plan to attend the Wrap It Up party.  With Rudolph’s Raffle and a 50/50 draw there will be something for everyone to enjoy.   Get a tip or two from the north pole, toy making experts themselves.

Why

The holiday season is a time for giving, for family and friends.   It is a time of love, of inclusion and coming together no matter your background. 

The Christmas Tree symbolizes the giving spirit.  This is the essence of The Festival of Trees – it is to give.

This event creates hope for a better and stronger tomorrow through the strengthening of our community with compassion, kindness, and love.

And it is our deepest hope that this becomes a tradition for the town of Innisfail, like many of holiday traditions held by the families that make up this community.

Join in the true Spirit of Christmas and the Holiday Season.
