Festival of Trees and Lights
Get Involved

Festival of Trees and Lights - get involved

The Festival of Trees and 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, and the holiday attractions and activities delight guests of all ages. Be a part of this incredible event by becoming a designer, volunteer or sponsor.


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

Youth designers

Is your 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! Youths 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 booth.


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.

Pre-purchase 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!

Without the support of sponsors in the community, the Festival of Trees & Lights and its life-giving support for the hospital would be impossible. This is your opportunity to be a sponsor of one of the highest profile fundraisers in the region and become active in a cause from which everyone benefits.
