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.
