3rd Annual

Festival Of Trees

Welcome to the 3rd Annual Festival of Trees, where holiday magic transforms the usual into the extraordinary. Within weeks, Government Center will look like a winter wonderland with uniquely decorated Christmas trees.

While this holiday magic lasts only a few weeks, it continues throughout the year in the hearts of those who volunteer and support The Festival of Trees. Every penny raised is used to give “A Gift of Love” to the lives of those less fortunate.
Make the Festival of Trees a part of your holiday season and help share the magic.

Businesses, civic organizations, neighborhood groups and more are invited to sponsor a
6-foot tree for $50. The sponsor then decorates the tree however they choose.

This year all the trees will be displayed at Government Center where the trees will deck the halls in true holiday spirit. The “Festival of Trees” event is scheduled for Saturday, December 16th from 11:00AM – 4:00PM where guests will be welcomed in true holiday spirit to view the trees enjoy music by local artist, refreshments and a visit from Santa.

A Free holiday concert will follow the conclusion of the tour from 3:00pm-4:00pm

Creative Arts Network, C.A.N. and The Fall River Herald News invites you to spend the day in Fall River, a city, rich in history and a love of Art & Culture!
