The 13th AnnualFestival of Trees” will begin soon. The “Festival of Trees” was created to give local non-profit organizations a festive way to tell their story and make the public more aware of community needs and services and to assist local non-profit organizations with fundraising efforts.  Participating organizations decorate their tree to represent their organization.  Attendees, in turn, can donate money for a vote on their favorite tree….so the more creative, the better!  ALL funds collected go to the organization receiving the votes.

Festival of Tree Application

The Festival of Trees will be open during the night of the Christmas Parade and Christmas on Limestone event on Friday, December 6 and every week day from Dec. 2 – Dec. 23 from 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Please share the attached flyer (Attachment 2) for the Christmas events on December 6, which will also include a laser light show at Jolly Park on Railroad Avenue. The laser light show lasts for 20 minutes and runs every 30 minutes from 8:00 p.m. – 12:00 midnight on Friday and from 6:00 p.m. – 12:00 midnight on Saturday.

If your organization is interested in participating in the Festival of Trees, please  provide the following:

  • A paragraph that describes your organization’s mission statement (this along with a small picture of something on your tree will be posted on the Gaffney Visitors Center & Art Gallery’s Facebook page to help spread your organization’s mission). Also, be sure to like/follow the Gaffney Visitors Center and Art Gallery’s facebook page so that you will be able to share your organization’s post to help spread awareness and educate the community about your organization.
