GATLINBURG (press release)—Gatlinburg Festival of Trees, a tradition more than 30 years in the making, will continue in 2015 with its new presenting sponsor, Hospitality Solutions. When it was announced that the Festival of Trees would not return following 2014, the community rallied behind this beloved Christmas fundraiser and made their voice heard loud and clear. With such a strong presence in the Sevier County area, Hospitality Solutions is devoted to making Gatlinburg Festival of Trees an event that continues to provide needed funds throughout the community during the Christmas season.
All proceeds from Gatlinburg Festival of Trees 2015 will benefit Boys & Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains. Serving 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 Festival of Trees runs from November 25–29 and officially kicks off with Candy Canes and Cocktails Reception on the evening of Tuesday, November 24. The festival will feature a craft area, entertainment throughout the week, photos with Santa Claus and of course, the beautifully decorated Christmas trees. Please join us in continuing the tradition of ringing in the Christmas season with the 2015 Festival of Trees!
