Festival of Trees

The holiday event of the season!  

Premieres each year, the first Thursday, after Thanksgiving. Family Tree Nuturing Center Festival of Trees is our major fund-raiser. The Festival has become one of the finest community activities, garnering support from banks, hospitals, churches, non-profit organizations, local businesses, schools and scout troops, and many donors.

Since 1985, Family Tree Nuturing Center Festival of Trees has become synonymous with the holiday season in Billings, MT. For many residents and visitors, the holidays would not be complete without at least one visit to view the beautiful trees or participate in the weekend activities.

Each year, Family Tree Nuturing Center Festival of Trees provides an opportunity for community members to help prevent child abuse and neglect in Yellowstone County and the surrounding areas.  Donating or buying a tree, sponsoring the event, or participating in one of the many weekend activities during the Festival helps raise money and awareness; both help Family Tree Nurturing Center.

Over the course of this 3-day event, over 10,000 people pass through the doors to view the many decorated and participate in the assortment of activities.

All dollars raised at the Festival go where they are needed most—toward the many child abuse prevention programs in place at Family Tree Nurturing Center. Referrals are increasing, and the number of families that we serve continues to grow. Now more than ever, Family Tree Nurturing Center needs your support.

This year's event will be our 38th year. It will be held on Nov. 30th, Dec. 1st & 2nd. Scroll down to see schedule of events, Gala and Tea in the Trees details. 

 Please join us in our efforts to “stop the hurt before it happens.”
