Support for our sponsors during COVID-19

Support from local businesses is at the heart of the success of Festival of Trees Victoria. For 28 years, local businesses in Victoria have generously supported BC Children's Hospital through the Festival of Trees. Today, many of these businesses have had to pivot their operations in light of COVID-19, and now it's our turn to support them. We have compiled a list of how our sponsors and local businesses are operating during this pandemic. Please join us in supporting the local businesses in Victoria that help make Festival of Trees so magical.

The 28th Annual Festival of Trees

Thanks to you, the 28th Annual Festival of Trees Victoria was an overwhelming success. This year's event raised an astounding $203,647—the largest total in the event's 28-year history—thanks to our tree sponsors and festival donors this holiday season.

Your support will help provide the best care imaginable for kids across the province, including the 3,300 kids from Vancouver Island who visit BC Children's Hospital each year for specialized care they can't get anywhere else. It will also allow us to purchase a brand new state-of-the-art ECG machine for the Heart Centre at BC Children’s Hospital.

Congratulations to this year's award winners and honorable mentions.

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 27 consecutive years. Thanks to sponsors, local businesses, organizations and individuals, the Bay Centre is transformed into a lush forest of beautifully decorated trees to raise funds for BC Children's Hospital Foundation. 

In addition to our signature Festival of Trees in Victoria, supporting events were held around the province in Nanaimo, SookeWhistler, and Kelowna.

For information on any of our Festival of Trees events, please contact Shaun Cerisano.
