The East Coast’s Largest Holiday Spectacular
Kennedy Krieger Institute’s Festival of Trees, the most massive and extravagant holiday event on the East Coast, benefits the special-needs children of Kennedy Krieger. It’s held at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium, Maryland.
Festival of Trees
Shoppers selected from over 700 hand-decorated trees, wreaths, and gingerbread houses; and they perused more than 100 boutiques packed with gifts and holiday decor.
When they weren’t browsing, they viewed the train garden and gingerbread house display.
The festival featured live entertainment, a carnival with rides, arts and crafts, games, pony rides, and much more. Some competed in a scavenger hunt, while others purchased raffle tickets, and bid on silent auction items.
The event was held the weekend after Thanksgiving at the Timonium Fairgrounds in Timonium, Maryland. It’s the top fundraising event for Kennedy Krieger, and if you didn’t attend this year, please consider a donation.
The dates for the 2018 Festival of Trees are November 23 to November 25, and you can reserve your tickets and hotel room now.
Kennedy Krieger Institute
Kennedy Krieger Institute specializes in “disorders of the brain, spinal cord, and musculoskeletal system.” They serve over 16,000 patients annually.
The Festival of Trees benefits an excellent cause and is worth the trip.
