We are excited to announce that the 26th Festival of Trees raised more than $332,000, including in-kind donations, for Palmetto Health Children's Hospital! Thank you to everyone who joined us for Festival of Trees and to all of our volunteers, sponsors and item donors. Festival of Trees would not be possible without the hundreds of donated items and hours from local businesses, organizations, individuals and Palmetto Health departments/team members.

The 26th Festival of Trees will be Nov. 20-22 at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center in Columbia, SC. Festival of Trees features decorated trees, wreaths, stockings and gifts that will be up for bid during a weekend-long silent auction. The auction will also feature several children’s menorahs and dreidels, in celebration of Hanukkah. Guests will attend from across the Midlands to enjoy the holiday cheer as well as wonderful activities and entertainment.
