The annual Festival of Trees is a beautiful holiday celebration of lights and unique designs. During the weekend of the event, the training center will be turned into a magical Christmas wonderland complete with refreshment cafe, continuous holiday entertainment and gift boutique.

The Festival has become a very popular community event with individuals and businesses sponsoring trees, wreaths, swags, and centerpieces, and then decorating them according to a particular theme. Festival-goers delight in strolling along the “snowy” paths, and choosing their favorites for the People’s Choice awards. Attendees can also enjoy refreshments from the cafe, and visit the beautiful holiday boutique filled with crafts from artists throughout southeastern Wisconsin.

All proceeds go towards the care and treatment of animals in the shelter.
