Annual Festival of Trees

Friends of Caroline Hospice Announces 30th Annual Festival of Trees

 

The 30th Annual Festival of Trees to benefit Friends of Caroline Hospice is one of Beaufort’s most beloved holiday celebrations and the 2017 event continues a tradition that started thirty years ago, presenting several days of holiday fun.

The event kicks off with an Opening Gala on Thursday, November 30, at The Shed on Paris Avenue in Port Royal featuring a preview of 75+ beautifully and whimsically decorated trees available for purchase, a big silent auction, music, wine, beer and lots of food from ten of Beaufort’s best local restaurants. Santa will also be in attendance to have some fun and get some photos with attendees.

This year at The Shed, there will be Festival Shoppes open throughout the event where you can get curated Christmas treasures from Friends of Caroline Thrift Store, school tours, kids fun zone, a Sunday Snow Day (with real snow to play in), a visit by Santa himself along with Mrs. Claus and even a live reindeer.
