How it Works

Businesses, individuals and organizations donate fully decorated artificial trees and gifts that will be displayed throughout the event. The public is invited to come and enjoy this extravaganza of trees and may purchase inexpensive raffle tickets to deposit in boxes by their favorite trees. All trees and any associated gifts will be raffled off to lucky winners at the end of the event.

The name of your business or organization will be prominently displayed with your tree all weekend, and it may be included in advertising flyers promoting the event.

Food and beverages will be available for sale throughout the event. Our Gingerbread Cafe will be open as well as a Bake Sale featuring homemade baked items.

The Festival of Trees will take place at Northern Maine Community College Gymnasium in Presque Isle, the first weekend in December. Tree sponsors will be setting up trees on Thursday, prior to the event opening on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Tree Guidelines

All trees must be artificial. We suggest floor trees 5 ft – 7 ft tall. A good solid stand is necessary for the best stability. Items placed at the base of the tree will be considered part of the tree and will be given away. We will provide a ticket box for your tree, and a sign will be placed by the tree with your name prominently displayed. Please be specific as to how you want your company or group name to be displayed.

We reserve the right to add floor decorations where we can fit them in to develop the Winter Wonderland theme.
