Event Description

The Festival of Trees is back this year, moving downtown to the DoubleTree by Hilton. This annual event is held by The Gazette and the Cedar Rapids Jaycees. With over 40 decorated trees on display, entertainment and the holiday market, this is a do not miss event for anyone who loves the holidays. And even for those who don't.

Most of the decorated trees will be available for purchase through silent auction with proceeds benefiting the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation, HACAP, Shoes for Kids and Toys for Tots. In past years, the event has raised over $11,000.

Along with enjoying the trees, attendees can also visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus!

Special appreciation to our presenting sponsors Alliant Energy and the Cedar Rapids Area Assocation of Realtors.
