The 50th annual Festival of Trees fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley is set for the weekend of Friday, Nov. 16 through Sunday, Nov. 18 at The Centre in Santa Clarita.

SCV residents support the club’s mission by viewing and bidding on the many beautifully designed and elaborately decorated large trees, tabletop trees and charming one-of-a-kind gingerbread houses.

Large trees range in height from six to nine feet and many come with gifts including event tickets, wine, furniture, jewelry and more.

Many large trees are only available to bid on during the Live Auction at the “Magic of the Lights Gala” on Friday, Nov. 16. Festival general admission is Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 17 and 18 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Co-Chairs Marshall and Kathleen Hann invite you to this annual holiday fundraiser. The Boys & Girls Club is making a difference in the lives of thousands of local children and teens by supporting their academic success, providing a second home, and building leaders.

Fun for the Whole Family
There is something for everyone at Festival of Trees.

Children will find a variety of fun crafts and activities in the Kids’ Corner (additional activity ticket required, purchase on site).
