Event Chairs Jenny and Tim Ketchepaw invite you to ring in the holiday season at the 20th Annual Festival of Trees, benefitting Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley.
Title Sponsor, Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger’s support is expanding this year’s event to three days. The Festival will run from Nov. 18 through Nov. 20 and will be hosted at the Canyon Country Community Center, 18410 Sierra Highway, Canyon Country, CA 91351.
The event features elaborately designed holiday trees, some with themed vignettes and special gifts, which are available to bid on in live and silent auctions. A big crowd favorite is the Gingerbread Village, where crafty culinary artisans showcase their talents with amazing gingerbread creations, which are also available for purchase.
There is something for everyone at the festival and children will delight in the many activities offered in the children’s corner such as cookie decorating and holiday crafts. Even jolly old Saint Nick will make the trip south a little early to be on hand for photos with the kids. Check Santa’s hours before visiting the festival.
Over the last two years Festival of Trees continued in virtual and smaller formats. This year, with Title Sponsor Barger’s support, the event back is getting back to its bigger and better size and scale by being open for three community days, the return of the magic show and more entertainment.
Highlights of this year’s festival include the elegant Magic of the Lights Gala on Friday, Nov. 18, live entertainment by various local dance groups Saturday and Sunday and the Holiday Hocus Pocus Magic show on Nov. 19 at 7 p.m.
Bring the whole family during the community days on Friday Nov. 18, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday Nov. 19 and Nov. 20, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
Held the weekend before Thanksgiving, Festival of Trees is Santa Clarita’s kick-off to the holiday season.
Support local youth, get into the holiday spirit and visit Festival of Trees at Canyon Country Community Center.
