Victoria Festival of Trees

November 21, 2013 - January 7, 2014
The Fairmont Empress - 721 Government St. Victoria, BC

Every year, Victoria Festival of Trees transforms The Fairmont Empress into a lush forest of beautifully decorated trees to raise funds for BC Children's Hospital. Sponsors, local businesses, organizations and individuals of this event come together and decorate trees - in a sometimes wacky, often irreverent and always beautiful fashion. These enchanting trees are then displayed throughout The Fairmont Empress over the holiday season.

The 2012 Victoria Festival of Trees raised over $122,000 in support of the urgent needs at BC Children's Hospital. More than 13,000 votes were cast for the 77 beautifully decorated trees during the seven weeks at The Fairmont.

Festival Dates and Hours of Operation
The event is open to the public seven days a week until 11:00pm every night from the end of November to the beginning of January. There is no admission cost, but we suggest a minimum $2.00 donation to vote for your favourite tree.
