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.

Designers

Designers receive artificial trees (lights included), wreaths and other greenery from the festival in October and return their fully decorated items on the Tuesday and Wednesday before the festival begins. You will be notified of important dates related to tree and greenery pickup and drop-off, and on-site decorating for large trees.

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.

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.
