We at Share Parents of Utah want you to know that we are here for you. We know this may be a complicated and stressful time for many of our Share families. We are here to listen and bounce helpful ideas off one another. We are in this together. 

1) Comment on our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/shareparentsofutah/ 

2) If you need to talk personally, our Share Helpline is 801-272-5355.

3) If you prefer email: info@shareparentsofutah.org.

4) WE HAVE SUSPENDED ALL OF OUR IN-PERSON, SUPPORT GROUP MEETINGS and have replaced them with "Zoom Cloud Meetings". We are hopeful that we will get back to face-to-face meetings shortly. These virtual meetings are really helpful and we can see one another as we talk (not required, but is an option). It's a wonderful way for us to still support one another. You can download the "Zoom" app onto your phone and/or computer - it's super simple! By clicking one of the linked meetings, it will walk you through the easy-to-understand process.

2019 Festival of Trees



49th Annual Festival of Trees


Holiday magic abounds thanks to the help of many hands and a generous community. In a 24-hour period, an empty exhibit hall transforms into a holiday winter wonderland of uniquely decorated Christmas trees, wreaths, playhouses, centerpieces, quilts, and gingerbread houses. Shops are filled with dolls, handmade crafts and quilts. The aroma of cookies, candies, hot scones, cinnamon rolls and freshly-made fudge fills the air.

While the Festival of Trees lasts just four days, the spirit of this holiday tradition continues all year long in the hearts of those who volunteer and donate to the Festival of Trees. Most importantly, the magic continues in the children who receive care at Primary Children's Hospital.

The funds raised at the Festival of Trees are a “A Gift of Love,” given to the children at Primary Children’s Hospital.



We are excited to unveil our, "See You In Our Dreams," tree this year.

You can visit our tree on Row L, Space 1 at the end. 


Share Parents of Utah is participating for the 5th year as a Large Tree decorator. 
Once again, we are grateful to our Share Families for supporting our Festival Tree 
through the purchase of our handmade, personalized ornaments. 

Our tree will represent the love of the many families who have chosen to 
honor their baby through the purchase of an ornament 
for the Festival Tree or to keep at home.

Wednesday, December 4 through Saturday, December 7, 2019
Wednesday - Saturday 10:00 am to 9:00 pm
