The holiday event of the season!  Premieres each year, the first Thursday, after Thanksgiving. The Festival of Trees is the major fund-raiser for The Family Tree Center. The Festival has become one of the finest community activities, garnering support from banks, hospitals, churches, non-profit organizations, local businesses, schools and scout troops.

Begun in 1985, the Festival of Trees has become synonymous with the holiday season in Billings. For many residents and visitors, the holidays would not be complete without at least one visit to view the trees or participate in the weekend activities.

Each year, the Festival of Trees provides an opportunity for community members to help prevent child abuse and neglect in Yellowstone County and the surrounding area.   Donating or buying a tree, sponsoring the event, or participating in one of the many weekend activities during the Festival helps raise money and awareness; both help The Family Tree Center.
 
Over the course of this 4-day event, over 10,000 people pass through the doors to view the unique Holiday Trees and participate in the assortment of activities.
 
All dollars raised at the Festival go where they are needed most—toward the many child abuse prevention programs in place at The Family Tree Center. Referrals are increasing, and the number of families that we serve continues to grow. Now more than ever, the Family Tree Center needs your support.
 Please join us in our efforts to “stop the hurt before it happens.”
