Visit Victoria's Festival of Trees

The 27th Annual Festival of Trees is proudly hosted by the Bay Centre. Visit us, and see the Bay Centre transformed into a lush forest of hand-decorated trees. Share in the spirit by voting for your favourite, with all proceeds supporting the most urgent health care needs of kids in BC.

Trees will be on display at the Bay Centre until January 7, 2019. Please note that the Bay Centre is closed on Christmas Day.
