Dear Friends of the Festival of Trees:
This year marks the 48th year of Gatlinburg’s Festival of Trees. Hospitality Solutions is honored to participate as the Presenting Sponsor again in 2021. The proceeds from Gatlinburg Festival of Trees 2021 will benefit Boys & Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains and the Gatlinburg Chamber Foundation. The Boys & Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains serve more than 1,600 local youth across Sevier County. The clubs offer youth a safe place to learn and grow through programs designed to build character and strengthen life skills while not at home or school.
We are very pleased to announce that, despite the many challenges we faced during the historic pandemic year, the total proceeds donated to Boys & Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains from the 2020 Festival of Trees was $25,000 and $5,000 was donated to the Gatlinburg Chamber of Commerce Foundation. With your help and participation, we hope to continue to improve on the Festival this year.
The Festival of Trees runs from November 24th to 28th and kicks off with Candy Canes and Cocktails Reception on the evening of Tuesday, November 23rd. The Festival will feature a children’s craft and play area, entertainment, photos with Santa Claus and, of course, the beautifully decorated Christmas trees and wreaths. Please join us in continuing the tradition of ringing in the Christmas season with the 2021 Festival of Trees!
If you are interested in sponsoring, participating in our event or donating silent auction items for our Kickoff Reception, please email us at Amelia Sweeney. The Festival will be open from 10 am to 7 pm Wednesday, November 24th through Saturday, November 27th and on Sunday, November 28th from 10 am to 4 pm.
We greatly appreciate your support in continuing this beloved Christmas tradition that has been a part of our community for the past 48 years.
President, Hospitality Solutions
