TreeFest in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania begins with the area Christmas tree growers who donate over a hundred live trees to be trimmed. Then, hundreds of people – from community volunteers and youth groups, to florists and garden clubs- set up and decorate the rooms and trees which are each sponsored by an area business or individual.

Throughout the event, local entertainment is provided, from school choirs to dance groups and folk musicians performing in front of a seasonal mural. Adding to the holiday atmosphere, visitors will be able to start their Christmas shopping with the dozens of professional craft artisans displaying their wares for sale, a gingerbread house contest, and a special Chinese auction.

At the conclusion of activities, the trees are donated to area families in need, as identified by local social service agencies.

TreeFest is held at the Caldwell Consistory, located at Market Square in Bloomsburg — find us using MapQuest. Official parking behind the Columbia County Court House will be available on weekends.
