This season, enjoy the holiday splendor that only a room full of ornately decorated Christmas trees can provide. Presented by Gatlinburg Hospitality Solutions, Gatlinburg’s annual Festival of Trees returns with all new family-friendly activities, live entertainment, visits with Santa Claus and, of course, exquisitely decorated Christmas trees and wreaths that will be available for purchase.

This year marks the 46th year of Gatlinburg’s Festival of Trees. Hospitality Solutions is honored to participate as the Presenting Sponsor again in 2019. The proceeds from Gatlinburg Festival of Trees 2019 will benefit Boys & Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains and the Gatlinburg Chamber Foundation. The Boys & Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains serve more than 1,600 local youth across Sevier County. The clubs offer youth a safe place to learn and grow through programs designed to build character and strengthen life skills while not at home or school.

We are very pleased to announce that during our second year as Presenting Sponsor for the Festival, the total proceeds donated to Boys & Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains from the 2018 Festival of Trees was over $50,000 and $10,000 was donated to the Gatlinburg Chamber Foundation. With your help and participation, we hope to continue to improve on the Festival this year.

The Festival of Trees runs from November 27th to December 1st and kicks off with Candy Canes and Cocktails Reception on the evening of Tuesday, November 26th. Families are invited to enjoy Breakfast with Santa on November 30th. The Festival will feature a children’s craft and play area, entertainment throughout the week, photos with Santa Claus and, of course, the beautifully decorated Christmas trees and wreaths. This year we will also bring back the Gingerbread House Competition. Please join us in continuing the tradition of ringing in the Christmas season with the 2019 Festival of Trees!
