About Festival of Trees

Edmonton's Signature Holiday Event

Since 1985, the University Hospital Foundation’s Festival of Trees has brought families and friends together to celebrate the season, create lasting memories and support critically important causes at the University of Alberta Hospital (UAH) site.

As always, at the core of Festival is our tireless volunteers who commit countless hours and unmeasurable dedication, year after year, to the University Hospital Foundation’s largest fundraising, and friendraising, event of the year.

The success of Festival of Trees speaks for itself – over $23 million raised, supporting causes as far-ranging and life-saving as Gamma Knife radiosurgery and expanding the cardiovascular intensive care unit at the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute to making life better for people living with end-stage kidney disease with the opening of the West Edmonton Kidney Care clinic.
