Mark your calendars and support Santa Clarita’s children and teens at Festival of Trees. This year’s event will be held at Westfield Valencia Town Center, Friday Nov. 22 – Sunday, Nov.24. Held the weekend before Thanksgiving, Festival of Trees is Santa Clarita’s kick-off to the holiday season.
Join in the tradition and visit our Hall of Trees, where you will find 40+ beautifully designed and themed Christmas trees. In the Tabletop Christmas Trees area you will discover three-four foot trees that are guaranteed to amaze even the most seasoned elf. If the trees are not enough, the charming one-of-a-kind gingerbread houses are sure to get you into the holiday spirit with their creative and whimsical take on tradition. Be sure to get a photo with Santa while you’re there. Support local youth, get into the holiday spirit, and visit Festival of Trees at Westfield Valencia Town Center, Friday, Nov. 22 – Sunday, Nov. 24.
At Festival of Trees you will get to experience this unique event and have the opportunity to take a piece of it home with you. The best way to experience the event is to attend the Magic of the Lights Gala on Friday night. Held in The Canyon, the gala includes gourmet food, entertainment, and the public’s only opportunity to bid on the live auction Christmas Trees, many of which come with gifts such as event tickets, wine, furniture, jewelry and more. Silent auction tree and gingerbread house opening bids and buy-it-now options will be available. This event will sell out so purchase your tickets now. Sponsorship opportunities are now available.

“This is going to be the most amazing Festival of Trees yet,” said Club Board President Ann-Marie Bjorkman. “We are so excited about our new location at Westfield. This is the best way to get into the holiday spirit in Santa Clarita. It’s such a wonderful event, and it all supports our local kids at Boys & Girls Club.”
Two other exciting events integrated into Festival of Trees are the Jingle Jam and Holiday Hocus Pocus Magic Show. Westfield will be holding their grand reopening Thursday, Nov. 21. As part of the celebration you can get a sneak peek at the trees at our swing dance: Jingle Jam. Bring the whole family Saturday night for one of Santa Clarita’s most unique event’s Holiday Hocus Pocus. Experience up close and stage magic while supporting Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley.
“Believe it or not, our tree designers started building and decorating this year’s trees in early October,” said Chief Executive Officer Matt Nelson. “We have the most amazing and dedicated volunteers. This event would not be possible without them.
“Make sure to check out the Holiday Hocus Pocus Magic Show on Saturday night,” Nelson said. “It is the perfect event for families. We have an incredible line up of magicians and entertainers. Oh, and we can’t forget that we will have dance groups performing throughout Festival of Trees on Saturday and Sunday.”
