Festival of Trees In the Community

Santa's Little Guests presented by Cameron Corporation

Santa Claus and a merry elf will be bringing the Festival of Trees to up ten schools of greatest needs in Edmonton.

In collaboration with the Edmonton Public and Edmonton Catholic school boards, ten schools will be identified for a visit by our merry guests in the week before Christmas. Children from numerous classrooms at each school will get to hear a holiday story from Jolly ol’ Saint Nick and receive a gift bag and craft. In addition, students will be provided with a colouring sheet that they can complete. These colouring sheets will be displayed at the University Hospital site for all to see and enjoy.

Winter Wonderland Holiday Market

New to the Festival of Trees, our Winter Wonderland Holiday Market is the perfect family outing this holiday season. Taking place at RE/MAX Field, Winter Wonderland offers both indoor and outdoor activities, plus the opportunity for Festival of Trees fans to enjoy a selection of famously decorated trees. General admission and parking are both free, making Winter Wonderland a great way for the community to experience a little Festival of Trees magic over the holiday season.

Transforming Neuro Rehabilitation

Presented by Landmark Homes, the cause for the 2022 Festival of Trees is neuro rehabilitation.

By 2031, the estimated number of Canadians hospitalized with a brain injury will increase by 28%. Together, we can transform neuro rehabilitation in Alberta and beyond, with the creation of an advanced Neuro Rehabilitation Innovation Centre at the University of Alberta Hospital. Our commitment to raise $1 million for this project will give researchers near-limitless opportunities to make groundbreaking discoveries that will impact the lives of those living with traumatic neurological conditions.
