About Festival of Trees Victoria

Festival of Trees is a cherished community tradition and has become the unofficial kick-off to the holiday season in Victoria, serving our community for the last 28 consecutive years. Beginning on November 19, the Bay Centre will be transformed into a lush forest of beautifully decorated trees to raise funds for BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, all thanks to sponsors, local businesses, organizations and individuals. Guests can bring their loved ones, marvel in the magic of Victoria’s community spirit and vote for their favourite tree. Visit the Bay Centre’s website for holiday hours.

Your support will help provide the best care imaginable for sick and injured kids from across the province, including the 3,300 kids from Vancouver Island who visit BC Children’s Hospital each year for specialized care they often can’t get anywhere else.

In addition to our signature Festival of Trees in Victoria, local communities around the province are also participating including locations in Vancouver, Mid-Island, and Kelowna this holiday season.
