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 display of hundreds of decorated holiday trees, wreaths and greenery which is online this year. Be a part of this incredible event by becoming a designer, volunteer or sponsor.

Designers

We are no longer accepting designers for the 2020 Festival of Trees & Lights. Contact us to inquire about any remaining inventory or to be added to the 2021 designer communication list.

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.

Prepurchase or sponsor a tree and 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!
