For 36 years Festival of Trees has been a holiday tradition for our community. As we navigate Covid-19 and prepare for the safety of our community, Erie’s favorite holiday tradition will bring different and new memories this year.

Our premier holiday event will be held both virtually and as a drive-through experience. 

The continued success of Festival of Trees and the impact to Saint Vincent Hospital and Children’s Miracle Network is only possible with the support of our community and business partners. Saint Vincent is proud that proceeds from this year’s Festival of Trees will support the creation of a Healthy Food Center at AHN Saint Vincent Hospital.  Through the center, our patients will have access to healthy foods and nutrition counseling to help manage their overall health, no matter their income or budget.
