Get Involved

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

Volunteers

Here’s your chance to see Festival of Trees & Lights behind the scenes. We need volunteers to make this year’s event a success. Register here.

If you are interested in joining the planning committee, contact Amanda Current, director, events, Children’s Hospital Foundation, at (502) 629-8338.

Without the generosity of community sponsors, the Festival of Trees & Lights and its life-giving support for Norton Children’s Hospital would be impossible. This is your opportunity to be a sponsor of one of the region’s highest-profile fundraisers and become active in a cause that benefits the whole community.

Businesses

We are no longer accepting designers for the 2019 Festival of Trees & Lights. 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 the tree is displayed at the festival, we will deliver it right to your door.
