NH Festival of Trees events




Looking to get into the holiday spirit and love the sparking ornaments and twinkling holiday lights? Check out beautifully decorated trees at New Hampshire's various Festival of Trees events. Trees are often donated and decorated by local businesses in an effort to help fundraise for local events and activities. You can bid on trees, enter raffles, indulge in cookies and cocoa and more.
