The object of this festival is to have organizations and businesses donate fully decorated artificial trees that will be displayed throughout the event. The public is invited to come and see this extravaganza of trees, as well as some special displays benefiting the Christmas theme.
A sign designating the name of your Business or Organization will be prominently displayed with your tree throughout the event.
Admission to the showing of the trees is $2 for adults and children 12 and under are free. Raffle tickets will be available for sale so that the viewers may enter their tickets in the hopes of winning a beautiful tree. Each tree’s winner gets to take it home, fully decorated and all ready for the holidays.
A Craft Fair will be underway during the Feztival on the First Floor of the Temple and we will also have refreshments and food available throughout the week of the display, as well as special visits from Santa for the children.
All trees must be artificial trees.
We recommend 6 to 8 foot trees that have pre-lit lights in the tree.
Trees must be properly secured for free standing. A good solid stand will provide the best stability.
A skirting or a stand covered with cotton batting is recommended. Items placed at the bottom, or on the skirting, will be considered part of the tree and will be given away, unless otherwise noted.
A new extension cord must be provided and meet standard electrical codes.
You need to select a theme of your choice to be displayed under your Company or Group name on both your sign and raffle ticket box. The theme may represent your business, areas of interest (hobbies etc.), the holidays, or any other theme that you would be proud to have your business or group associated with in the public eye. We will provide the sign used to display your company / group name and your theme.
No items can be placed along the fence or on the candy canes.
Empty boxes decorated as Christmas gifts and placed under the tree must be labeled "For Display Purposes Only" on the package.
Currently there is a waiting list for tree sponsors. If you wish to get on the waiting list, please complete the tree registration form.
