Get Involved

The Festival of Trees & Lights, presented by Republic Bank, has been a kickoff to the holiday season in our community for more than a quarter of a century. The centerpiece of the festival is the walk-through display of hundreds of decorated trees, wreaths and greenery, along with holiday activities to delight guests of all ages. Be a part of this incredible event by becoming a designer, volunteer or sponsor.

Designers

Designers receive artificial greenery and lights (for trees) from the festival in the fall and return a fully decorated item on the Tuesday and Wednesday before the festival. You will be notified by email of important dates related to greenery pickup, drop-off and on-site decorating.

Submit your designer form

Youth Designers

Do you belong to a Girl Scout troop, Boy Scout troop or school looking to participate in the Festival of Trees & Lights? Designer and volunteer opportunities are available for schools, troops and kids of all ages! Youth and youth groups are invited to design and create ornaments to be sold at the Festival of Trees & Lights and have the opportunity to volunteer at the event.

Submit your youth designer form

Businesses

Businesses and other organizations can help too. Be creative!

Design a tree that includes items from your business, such as gift certificates and product samples, to showcase your products or services to festival attendees. You can decorate the tree yourself or we can provide a designer to make your tree gorgeous before it is sold to the public. Your tree and business signage will be on display at the festival.

You also can prepurchase or sponsor a tree. Choose a custom design in colors or a theme that will complement your home or office. After being displayed at the festival, we will deliver the tree right to your door!
