2018 Festival of Trees is November 13-18


2018 marks the 30th anniversary of the Festival of Trees in Cedar Falls. An annual tradition for many families, the lit trees, table settings and events are a perfect backdrop for family photos and for creating holiday memories.
 

This year’s festival takes place November 13-18 at the Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center. Hosted by the Sartori Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, dedicated volunteers and designers bring the lobby and mezzanine to life with a forest of decorated trees.
