Help our local Boys & Girls Club keep tradition alive and join them in creating an exciting and safe Festival of Trees holiday event!
This year's event will be held at Westfield Valencia Town Center the week of November 16 and virtually for the Magic of the Lights Gala on Friday, November 20. Held the weekend before Thanksgiving, Festival of Trees is Santa Clarita's kick-off to the holiday season - and this year, the event will be a celebration of joy and hope.
Visit the Hall of Trees, where you will find beautifully-designed and themed Christmas trees. In the Tabletop Christmas Trees area you will discover trees that are guaranteed to amaze even the most seasoned elf.
If the trees are not enough, the charming one-of-a-kind gingerbread houses are sure to get you into the holiday spirit with their creative and whimsical take on tradition.

The Virtual Magic of the Lights Gala Brings Trees Home with You
The best way to experience Festival of Trees is via the Virtual Magic of the Lights Gala on Friday night. Tickets or tables purchased for the virtual gala include gourmet food, entertainment and the public's only opportunity to bid on the live-auction Christmas Trees, many of which come with gifts such as unique experiences, wine, furniture, jewelry and more.
Festival of Trees will continue with General Admission hours the week of November 16. View all of the large and tabletop trees, as well as the gingerbread houses. All in-person viewing will follow all public health guidelines and protocols.
Sponsorship opportunities are now available.

"With all the uncertainty this year, our entire community deserves a chance to come together to celebrate and help kickoff the SEASON FOR HOPE."
