This event runs December 1-3, 2016 in the lobby of the Randall L. Jones Theatre. There is a suggested donation of canned goods when you attend the Festival of Trees to benefit the Iron County Care and Share, however all events are free and open to the public.

The Festival of Trees is not only a community event to celebrate the season, but also a way to raise funds and gather food for the Iron County Care and Share. All trees on display will be decorated by local businesses and individuals. These trees are donated to the Festival of Trees and available for purchase through silent auction. All proceeds will be donated to the Iron County Care and Share. This event will include the Utah Shakespeare Festival’s beautiful Christmas Village. You won’t want to miss it!

On the final day, Saturday, December 3rd, starting at 9:30 a.m. there will be readings of Christmas stories, local choirs and other performances for the community. Santa will join the festivities at 10 a.m. in the lobby for children and families to visit. During this event, there will be a place for visitors to bid on trees. Winning bids will be announced on December 3rd and trees will be delivered to those who won. The Department of Theatre Arts and Dance is offering a $2 discount on tickets to IMPACT: A Student-Choreographed Dance Concert with a donation of a canned food item.
