Over 1,000 people attend this event each year. The 2018 Festival of Trees will once again be held at the Sonesta Resort, located at 130 Shipyard Drive, in Shipyard Plantation. The trees, a spectacular display of beautifully and creatively-themed Christmas trees in all sizes and colors, are sponsored and decorated by local organizations, businesses, and individuals. Themes range from the traditional to the whimsical to the humorous. In addition to the trees, we will feature wreaths and centerpieces. During the festival, all trees and wreaths will be on display in the spacious Sonesta lobby.
