Festival of Trees 2019

Thursday, Dec. 5 through Sunday, Dec. 8

Porter Center, Brevard College

The Festival of Trees is an annual fundraiser for The Children’s Center of Transylvania County. This year, the Festival once again features a dazzling display of 30 elaborately decorated Christmas trees 3 to 8 feet tall, a Bake Shop with homemade goodies, a Cafe’ serving gourmet coffees, and a Gift Shop crowded with hand-crafted Christmas decorations.

Santa Claus will be on hand Friday and Saturday for the kids, offering visitors with cameras a chance to snap photos of their children with him. There’ll be a raffle for a chance to win prizes.

All to the tune of local musicians filling the space with holiday tunes, with tree lights inside the Porter Center’s impressive lobby and new lighted wooden tree decorations on the grounds outside adding an especially festive note after dark.

And to preview the Festival’s four-day run, the Children’s Center will hold its annual Preview Gala, a cocktail hour and sumptuous sit-down dinner in the Porter Center’s spacious lobby–surrounded by the trees–the night before opening. It is at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4th.


Thursday, Dec. 5th, noon to 8 p.m.

Friday and Saturday, Dec. 6th and 7th , 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Sunday, Dec. 8th , 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
