About the Festival

Dear Friends of the Festival of Trees:

Hospitality Solutions is happy to announce that the long-standing holiday tradition of the Gatlinburg Festival of Trees will continue in 2020! This year has brought unprecedented changes, and our event might be a bit different than in years past. We are working to redesign the event to adhere to the TN Pledge guidelines, and Festival related activities will be determined by current conditions at the time of the event. The Festival of Trees runs from November 25th to November 29th and promises to provide holiday cheer and memories for families to kick off the holiday season!

The proceeds of this event benefit the Boys & Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains and the Gatlinburg Chamber Foundation Scholarship Fund. Boys & Girls Clubs 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. The Gatlinburg Chamber of Commerce Foundation awards college scholarships each year to graduating seniors. We are very pleased to announce that the proceeds from the Festival’s 46th Anniversary year netted a donation of over $55,000 to the Boys and Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains and $12,000 to the Gatlinburg Chamber of Commerce Foundation Scholarship Fund.

Please join us in continuing the tradition of ringing in the Christmas season with the 2020 Festival of Trees. We greatly appreciate your support of this event, which has been a part of our community for over 46 years.
