Want to design a tree? You can choose from three different sizes:
Trees can be decorated with any style or theme you choose, so let your imagination run wild! Designers will be responsible for providing all decorating and display materials for their tree(s). Kennedy Krieger Institute will provide all artificial trees and tree stands (these trees and stands must be used; no substitutions allowed). Tree decorating will take place on-site at the Cow Palace on the Sunday and Monday prior to the event opening.
The following registration fees are required for anyone choosing to decorate a tree and must be paid at the time of registration. Please note the registration fee only offsets a portion of the cost of the trees to the Institute.
|Tree size||registration fee|
|7-foot Tree (limit 1 per person)||$50.00|
|4-foot Tree (limit 1 per person)|
Special thanks to our 2017 designers!
Anyone can create a wreath at home to be displayed and sold at Festival of Trees. This is a fun seasonal activity for everyone involved! It’s easy to be a wreath designer at Festival of Trees – you can decorate it at home and just drop off your item at the State Fairgrounds on the Sunday or Monday prior to the event opening. You, as a designer, are responsible for supplying your own artificial or dried wreath and all decorating/display materials. All items should be included as part of the donation to Kennedy Krieger Institute.
Everyone is welcome to submit a creation into the Gingerbread Village at Festival of Trees. Whether you are a culinary art professional, Boy Scout troop, Girl Scout troop, or just a group of friends, the possibilities are endless with these gingerbread structures.
