Festival of Trees

About the Festival

Festival of Trees was a family-oriented weekend filled with children’s programs, holiday treats, and a wonderland of exquisitely decorated trees. On December 6-8, 2013, local companies, organizations and talented volunteers transformed the Fess Parker’s Doubletree Resort rotunda into a warm, festive holiday haven.

The event ushered in the holiday season with a stunning display of uniquely decorated trees funded by our sponsors, which were raffled off at the conclusion of the weekend. Families were delighted watching the joy of the children’s faces as they visited with Santa, made a craft for someone special, listened to the merry melodies of local instrumental and vocal performers, and enjoyed other holiday surprises!  One-hundred percent of proceeds went towards the Junior League’s efforts to improve youth literacy on the South Coast.

Thank you to our Sponsors!
