Welcome to the online home of

The 2022 Festival of Trees is Coming Soon!


Festival of Trees, an annual benefit for the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation, is a special event for the community, coordinated through volunteer efforts and dedicated to funding research into the causes and cures of childhood diseases. These philanthropic funds have been a crucial source of support for innovative pediatric research projects at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan that have advanced the science and practice of pediatric health.

Festival of Trees has evolved into one of the largest fundraising benefits for the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation. Proceeds from this benefit support the Evergreen Endowment Fund held at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation. Over the past 37 years, Festival of Trees has funded over $9 million in pediatric research. It has taken the dedication of many volunteers, as well as the generosity of many sponsors, to reach this milestone. This would not have been possible without their support.

The annual event in November draws thousands of visitors, and has become a holiday tradition for people all over southeast Michigan. We are excited to announce that the 38th annual Festival of Trees will once again take place at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center in Dearborn. The event will run from November 20th through November 27th.

As the safety of our volunteers, sponsors and guests remain our highest priority, we continue to make changes to ensure we are able to have an event that everyone will feel comfortable attending.

See you in November!!!
