Tree, Wreath & Gingerbread Designers

We are always looking for creative individuals, groups, and organizations to help increase the holiday spirit by becoming designers at Kennedy Krieger Institute’s Festival of Trees! Anyone can participate and all are welcome.

Registration for the 2016 Festival of Trees will open on Tuesday, September 6, 2016 (Day after Labor Day). If you would like to be added to the mailing list to receive additional information about being a designer, please email Theresa Macheski at

This year we are offering the opportunity to be the designer for the following items: 7- Foot Tree, 4- Foot Tree, 2- Foot Tree, Wreath, and Gingerbread House.

Creations are considered a donation to the Festival of Trees. Each design will be priced for the public to purchase, thus raising money for the children of Kennedy Krieger Institute. In appreciation of the donation, each designer will receive complimentary tickets and will be eligible for a variety of awards.
