24th Annual Saratoga Festival of Trees: Dec. 4-8

24th Annual Saratoga Festival of Trees: Dec. 4-8

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

The 24th annual Saratoga Festival of Trees will take place Wednesday, December 4 through Sunday, December 8 at the Saratoga Springs City Center. 

This fun, family event and craft fair puts everyone in the holiday mood. Walk amongst over 250 beautiful twinkling trees, wreaths, centerpieces and other holiday items for visitors to purchase or simply admire. Money raised at the festival will go toward Catholic Charities, which provides services for the community through family counseling, group homes, hospice care and mentoring programs for children. 

This year, over 100 volunteers have collaborated to make the Festival of Trees as beautiful as it has been for two decades. Businesses, families and individuals donate Christmas trees to the festival, which are then decorated, usually with a theme. People can then buy the fully decorated trees and have them delivered to their home or office. 

For the children, Santa will be making a stop at the Festival of Trees, along with Rudolph and Frosty. On Saturday, family day at the festival, families can have breakfast and sundaes with Santa. Reservations are required and can be made by calling Catholic Charities at 518-587-5000. 

Guests can be the first to choose from the hundreds of trees, wreaths, and centerpieces at the preview reception on Wednesday, December 4 at 6 p.m. Food and drinks will be provided by Olde Bryan Inn and Longfellows. Tickets to this preview party are $75 and $65 for those under 35. For more information about the festival or to make reservations for the preview reception, breakfast or sundaes with Santa, visit the webiste: www.saratogafestivaloftrees.com.
