About the Festival

Festival of Trees is a three-day, family fun, holiday event that benefits the thousands of children and families who receive treatment and services at Kennedy Krieger Institute each year.

Even with all those elves, Santa himself couldn’t have designed a better fantasy world than Kennedy Krieger Institute’s Festival of Trees: Hundreds of designer-decorated trees, wreaths, and gingerbread towns to view and buy. Princesses, a carousel, and pony rides, complemented by over 100 gift boutiques, holiday goodies, and fun activities for kids of all ages. There’s also a special lineup of daily entertainment for the whole family!

To make Festival of Trees more accessible to the children and families we serve at Kennedy Krieger, we’ve made a number of enhancements. Accessibility Enhancements Festival of Trees.

Breakfast with Santa is now Sold Out.

General admission tickets are still available for Friday, November 25, through Sunday, November 27.
