This event is something my Family goes to at least once a year. It is very affordable and there is plenty of things to look at and do. You can view local art pieces, christmas trees, & wreaths. Or you can watch local performances (singing, dancing, etc). There is also a place for children to visit santa and play games.... More

The Festival of Trees showcases not only dozens of Christmas Trees, but also door wreaths, mantle scenes, and dioramas of Christmas scenes. There are both traditional and contemporary styles showcased. I have never had a bad time! Some times the talent show leaves something to be desired, but it's an amateur talent show, so you'll have that same times! ;)

I have enjoyed going to the Festival of Trees for years. Great for taking children and looking at trees. Although I dislike the huge crowds, it is fun to go there and see the trees!

A truly great way of kicking off the Holiday Season! We try to attend at least every other year - watching children, when they first get to see all these Christmas trees is simply precious! There always are other exhibits to admire also, for example decorated gingerbread houses - it's a delightful way of getting into the spirit of the... More

The concept is that people and groups decorate Christmas trees, and what a great variety are created by people who are very creative and others who are not. The ginger bread houses were a nice side exhibit. Great place to do some shopping for really unusual and sometimes unique items.

An annual event that begins Thanksgiving weekend. The event opening day features a Christmas parade through downtown Davenport. The River Center hall is filled with Christmas trees and wreaths decorated by local businesses, groups and individuals who compete for prizes.
