It is with heavy hearts that we made the extremely difficult decision to cancel Festival of Trees for this year. We have heard from some of our sponsors and some of our volunteers who man the event, and there are too many unknowns this year to go forward. Many of them are not comfortable being involved fearing that there will be an upsurge in virus cases in the fall and early winter. More importantly, it looks as though our construction on Phase 2 and Phase 3 of our building renovation is going to be delayed by approximately 2 weeks, so we will not have use of the training room until the end of November when we’ll be moving back in.

That means, however, that we will be more than ready for 2021 when Festival will be in our brand-new, beautiful space, and Phase 4 for the animals will also be completed. We can’t wait to share the new building with you, and the renovations will only intensify the appeal Festival of Trees brings to the community. So, although we are so very disappointed, We’re excited for the year ahead.

Despite the cancellation of the event, we ARE going to go ahead with our holiday café. Our bakers and chili makers will be up to their elbows in dough and comfort foods…we will keep you posted as we finalize our plans and get closer to the Christmas calendar.

Festival of Trees is a great way to get into the spirit of the season by taking a leisurely stroll through a forest of beautifully decorated trees surrounded by the sounds of live holiday music. 

Individuals and businesses sponsor and decorate the dozens of trees, wreaths and centerpieces which are then sold or raffled to benefit The Washington County Humane Society. Each tree is decorated according to a theme; some are traditional, some are eccentric and all are delightful!
