Festival of Trees

December  3-4, 2022

Join us for the

Alton Festival of Trees


Gingerbread House Decorating Contest!


~Event Hours~

Saturday, December 3rd from 11 am – 8 pm

Sunday, December 4th from 11 am – 2 pm! 


Here’s how it works:

This is for local businesses, organizations & residents who want to get creative with promoting your business and organization in ways you normally couldn’t. Get creative with using items that you sell, themed trees, toys or items that represent your business/organization. This is a fun way to display what your business/organization does and display your community pride! The trees will be raffled off for $1 a ticket.  A display table will be provided for the GINGERBREAD HOUSES and voting categories are youth & adult. 
Participating businesses/organizations/residents will REGISTER and “donate” a tree, decked out with all the trimmings of their choosing! Participants will set up their tree or wreath at the museum. Please see more about the rules and REGISTER HERE!
We’ll ask the community to purchase raffle tickets (for $1 each) for a chance to win their favorite tree(s) or wreath(s). A portion of the proceeds from the ticket sales will be donated to the Alton Community Services/Mrs. Santa Fund. At the end of the event, each of the trees will be given to the raffle winners. Tree winners are announced on 12/4 and will be picked up that night or by 12/5.
We’ll also ask our community to vote for a “Community Favorite” tree.
At the end of the event, our participating businesses will have made the season brighter, and supported a great local cause.
This event also includes refreshments, music, a raffle and more… This event is FREE to attend and open to the public. Stay up-to-date by following our Facebook event page!
