If you've never been to the Feztival, let me tell you what you can expect.

It's pretty cool.

Organizations and businesses sponsor trees that line the building, decorated in different themes, with different presents and gift cards adorning the tree branches and surrounding each space.

You'll want to purchase tickets and put your contact info on said tickets.

As you move throughout the venue, you'll have the opportunity to put your tickets in the box for any and all trees you'd like to submit for. And with a little holiday luck, your name could be drawn to be the winner of one of the trees you have bid upon.


Admission to the event is $2.00 for adults and kids 12 and under get in free. The proceeds that they collect from the Feztival go right back to the Anah Shriners, who work to benefit the Shriner's Hospitals. 

It's truly a sight to behold, and the smells of yummy goodies coming from the Gingerbread Bakery (available to purchase) make it a great event to help put you in the mood for the holiday season.
