Festival of Trees


Designer Info

Dear Festival of Trees Designers,

2023 is going to be an exciting year for Festival of Trees, and we’re thrilled for you to be a part of this wonderful event. We would like to thank you for your past support and welcome our new designers as you become a part of our beautiful benefit for the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation.  Celebrating our 39th year of raising funds for pediatric research, we are honored to have you be a part of this milestone!

We are excited to announce that newly elected Mayor Hammoud has invited us to continue to hold our Event at the Ford Community & Performing Art Center, located at 15801 Michigan Avenue in Dearborn. Your beautiful designs will be on display from Sunday, November 19th through November 26th. The Preview Gala will take place on Saturday, November 18th.

Our Designer Packet has been updated, and we ask that you please review it carefully.  This packet has a fillable option if you wish to complete it online and return via the website www.fot.org or by email.  If you prefer to have the packet mailed to you, please contact Cheryl at Mcfamily8468@sbcglobal.net.

Please note that we have combined our floor trees, tabletop trees, wreaths and centerpieces into one contract, as well as the guidelines. These documents can be viewed or downloaded using the link below:

English Gardens will once again provide 2ft and 3ft trees, and those will be available mid to late September. There are a limited number of 3ft trees, and those will be given on a first come, first serve basis. We are also in need of wreaths and centerpieces.

Please review the guidelines carefully. Note that when you send in your contract this is our confirmation that you will be participating in this year’s event.  Please join us in celebrating the success of Festival of Trees and the many benefits this organization has provided to children around the world

Thank you from Festival of Trees!
