Now in its 33rd year, the University Hospital Foundation’s Festival of Trees is firmly established as Edmonton’s signature kick-off to the holiday season — and the flagship fundraising, and friend-raising, event for the University Hospital Foundation.
…you’re doing more than enjoying Edmonton’s signature kick-off to Christmas event. You’re supporting the life-saving and changing care provided to patients at the University of Alberta Hospital, the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute and the Kaye Edmonton Clinic every day.
Over the last 32 years, the Festival of Trees has raised $20 million for critically important causes at the University of Alberta Hospital, the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute and the Kaye Edmonton Clinic.
The Festival of Trees is the home to great holiday shopping! Be sure to stop by our Gift Shop to purchase festive treasures. Kids can visit our Secret Shop, which has exclusive shopping for those 12 and under!
