Nov 04, 2019 12:45PM
Catch the excitement and benefit Ann’s Place at the 17th Annual Festival of Trees at the Danbury Sports Dome. The weekend of November 22 to 24 will be filled with live events and is the largest annual fundraiser for Ann’s Place. The event has raised over $3.1 million since 2003, supporting area cancer patients through services at Ann’s Place.
Festival of Trees days are filled with live entertainment on the hour, more than 100 holiday trees, amazing prizes, grand raffles, treasures in the Market Place, Quilter’s Corner and goods for purchase from specialty vendors, artisans and local craftsmen.
The Mistletoe and Martinis party from 6:30 to 10:30pm on Friday night will kick off the event. Sip delicious specialty drinks and join us in a tribute toast to Waterworks and The Benefactors Society, the organization’s 2019 honorees. On Saturday, local brewers will line up to share their favorite seasonal drinks at the annual Taps & Trees Craft Beer Fest. Attendees can enjoy live music and great food both nights.
Children and adults will be dazzled by the magic of Tom Pesce on Saturday, with seatings at 11am and 1pm. The little ones can enjoy the Children’s Winter Village, featuring a bounce house, Santa and activities including crafts, coloring station, face painting, tattoos and more.
General admission is 10am to 4pm and costs $10 for ages 3-64; those 65+ come for just $5. Evening programs have separate ticketing available online.
