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.

Save the dates: November 29 - December 1, 2019

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, complemented by more than 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!

Will YOU be the one-millionth visitor?

This year's event is extra special because we will be welcoming and celebrating the one-millionth visitor to Festival of Trees! One lucky attendee will mark this milestone, and will receive lifetime tickets to Festival of Trees!

Accessibility Enhancements

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