Coming Soon, more information about our 32nd annual event in December 2017




The holiday event of the season!   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.
