Festival of Trees Virtual Contest

November 13 - November 27

In July, they made the heartbreaking decision to cancel the Festival of Trees, as we know it, due to COVID-19. However, they plan to keep the spirit alive, and to raise crucial funds for the Dove Center, by offering a virtual event instead.
As a result, the 13th Annual Festival of Trees will be a virtual tree decorating contest. These trees will not actually be auctioned or available for purchase. They are simply entered into a decorating contest
There will be three classes
1) Individual
2) Commercial
3) Junior (16 and under)
Participants must send 6 photos of their trees and the entry form to by November 27th.
Festival of Trees volunteers will upload the pictures onto the Contest tab of the Festival of Trees website ( Individuals will vote for a tree by making a donation to the Dove Center, designated for that tree. The cost per vote will be $5 and multiple votes are encouraged. The contest runs from December 7th through December 21st.
Prizes for the trees that bring in the most donations are as follows:
Individual: $200 Gift Card to Dutch’s at Silver Tree
Business: Free Snowflake level sponsorship for Festival of Trees 2021
Junior: 6 Passes to Garrett 8 Cinemas
The contest will be marketed through Facebook and Instagram, however, designers are encouraged to share and market their tree for maximum effect.
Any individual who donates $50 or more can request a letter from Santa, an autographed picture of Sparkles the Elf, and a small treat to be mailed to a child of their choice. This can be requested in the subject line of the donation.
To participate, please complete the attached application, and return it with your photos, to, by November 27.
If you have questions, please call Heather at 301-334-6255, or email
