Welcome to the 11th Annual Festival of Trees
The Festival of Trees is a fundraising event for the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley. A visit to the Festival is a great way to kick-off the holiday season. Not only can you view the many beautiful and elaborately decorated trees which are available for purchase, but you can also purchase small tabletop trees, holiday wreaths, and charming one-of-a-kind gingerbread houses. Large trees range in height from six to nine feet and many come with gifts including furniture, event tickets, wine, jewelry and more.
FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
There is something for everyone at the Festival. Children will find a variety of fun crafts and activities in the Kids’s Corner (additional activity ticket required).

Lighted Trees a Holiday Tradition Since 1941
On Christmas Eve 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt illuminated the national Christmas tree on the south lawn of the White House. For one inspiring evening, the tree's lights shone brightly, in spite of a city-wide blackout order banning holiday lights for the season. The United States had entered World War II just seventeen days earlier, following the attack on Pearl Harbor. Roosevelt chose to light the tree because he recognized the comfort and strength that people would draw from it as a symbol of goodwill, prosperity and hope. Whether it's a majestic fir on public display or a delicate tabletop tree, the sparkling, ornament-laden tree is one of our most enduring holiday emblems.
