Festival of Trees
Celebrate the joy of the season Nov. 26-28.
Festival of Trees has been delighting families and supporting Cascade Health’s charitable programs for nearly three decades. We are thrilled to host the 29th annual Festival of Trees this November 26-28, 2021, at the Valley River Inn.
Festival of Trees is our largest annual fundraiser, providing vital support to the Pete Moore Hospice House. The only hospice house in Lane County, Pete Moore Hospice House provides compassionate end-of-life care and comfort for patients and families. Your generous support keeps this unique community resource open and available to those who need it.
As we navigate the changing COVID-19 landscape in our community, safety is at the forefront of our planning. With that in mind, the event will focus on the signature – and most popular – components of trees, wreaths, silent auction and a new marketplace featuring gifts and decorations. Though it may look different from past years, you can still count on Festival to be a fun, festive kick-off to the holiday season.
If you would like to receive event updates, please join our Festival of Trees mailing list, follow us on Facebook, or check out @festivaloftrees.eugene on Instagram! We look forward to celebrating the holiday season with you and your family!
The Tour of Trees will delight the whole family.
The Tour of Trees has become a family tradition in Eugene-Springfield, featuring elaborately decorated trees with unique themes from talented designers. The trees transform the Valley River Inn into a winter wonderland and are available for purchase in the online auction.
The Tour of Trees will also feature:
- A beautiful display of wreaths decorated by designers and available for purchase.
- A marketplace filled with holiday decorations, gifts and gift baskets for purchase.
- Wide array of silent auction baskets on display and available for bidding on our online auction.
The Tour of Trees will be open:
Friday, Nov. 26: 9am – 4pm
Saturday, Nov. 27: 9am – 6pm
Sunday, Nov. 28: 9am – 2pm
The tour is open to the public with a suggested donation of $10 per adult, $5 per child or $20 per family. We highly encourage you to pre-register online for fast entry! Just click below and show your receipt (on your phone is fine) at the door to skip the lines.
Join us for an evening of Cocktails & Conifers.
We invite you to join us for our special celebration the evening of Friday, Nov. 26, Cocktails & Conifers. Instead of our traditional Starlight Celebration gala, in consideration of COVID safety precautions we instead offer an elegant evening of mingling with a variety of hors d’oeuvres, small desserts and drinks. The event will feature a brief program and the opportunity to bid on exciting trips and other unique packages throughout the evening in our online auction. If you are not able to attend, we invite you to register to bid so you can participate virtually. All proceeds from the evening help Cascade Health’s Pete Moore Hospice House provide care and comfort to patients and their families during the final phase of life.
Friday, November 26, 2021, 6 – 9 p.m.
Brief program at 7:30 p.m.
