We look forward to another exciting year with over 2,000 volunteers making this event happen!



The Festival of Trees is brought to life by over 2,000 dedicated volunteers, many of whom work year-round planning the Festival, decorating trees and shopping for Christmas treasures.


Their tireless efforts make the University Hospital Foundation’s Festival of Trees an overwhelming success – attracting over 30,000 guests each year to the Shaw Conference Centre.
