Our Mission

A “new” version of the Festival of Trees began in Atlanta 2010 when the Embassy Suites Galleria hosted 25 non-profit organization’s Christmas tree displays and raised awareness and money for their causes.  The Festival continued there for another five years before the organizers brought the event downtown to the Embassy Suites Centennial Olympic Park in 2015.   Our goal is simple, to bring awareness and support to as many local Atlanta Non-Profit Charitable Organizations as possible.  We have successfully raised awareness and over $200,000 during the previous nine annual festivals for nearly 70 different local Atlanta charitable organizations.  Each year, with the support of all of you, we have exceeded our goals and expectations.  The organizers and participating non-profits want to thank you deeply from the bottom of their hearts for your support and contributions to the event.  There is nothing more rewarding than making a difference in the lives of others and you all make that possible.  Enjoy the photos of these inspiring tree displays and have a wonderful holiday season!

Christmas is the season for giving

I have a passion for the holidays and enjoy partnering with organizations in our community to support them and their mission.  The collection of trees that we showcase each year reflects how amazing our partners truly are. Let the Atlanta Festival of Trees put you in the holiday spirit!

Together we can make a difference

The organizations that we partner with are invited to participate and showcase a holiday tree that explains their mission with a special theme.  Our partners provide amazing programs for our community and we are excited to showcase these great organizations.
