Now open to the public from November 12 through November 23, this year's Festival of Trees has new events, a new location and even more holiday cheer.

A major fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley, Festival will raise more than essential operating funds - it will raise your spirit.

Festival of Trees is an extremely popular community-wide holiday event in support of the Boys & Girls Club of SCV. Elaborately-decorated trees and vignettes created by professional designers and other talented volunteers will be on display and for sale at the Festival. A charming gingerbread village, wreaths, centerpieces, children's activities and entertainment make the Festival of Trees a wonderful experience with something for everyone.

Can You bring Holiday Cheer to a Family in Need?
Each year, the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita identifies struggling local families in need. Without people like you, these families will not experience holiday joy like a special holiday meal, a tree, or gifts beneath. When you become a Club Family Festival Tree Sponsor, these holiday essentials will be purchased and delivered to a pre-selected club family. Your $1,000 cash donation will be rewarded with a tax deduction, Festival program recognition and 10 general-admission tickets to Festival. Readers are encouraged to join with family and friends to raise funds that will help a less-fortunate family's spirits soar.
