There’s more to love about the University Hospital Foundation’s 2022 Festival of Trees – starting now!

Reimagined and more accessible than ever, the 2022 Festival of Trees presented by Landmark Homes will bring Edmontonians more events and experiences to enjoy from August through December. We’re giving a makeover to the Gala & Auction and Silver Bell Soiree, two must-attend holiday fundraising events. And, we’re bringing back the best of the best ideas from last year, like our instant-classic Santa’s Breakfast at the University of Alberta Botanic Garden and the cherished Festival in a Box.

It doesn’t stop there. Festival of Trees fans can enjoy a selection of decorated trees at our brand-new Winter Wonderland holiday market, and win big in support of our cause with the famous 50/50 Draw and festive Online Auction.

Join us for the 2022 Festival of Trees and Let It Shine all throughout Edmonton!

Festival in a Box

Our wildly popular Festival in a Box is back with two boxes to choose from: an adult box, perfect for a cozy night in, and a kids box with festive goodies.

Online Auction

A great way to enhance your festive décor, find the perfect gift for your loved one or treat yourself to a getaway, the Online Auction features one-of-a-kind items and luxury packages that can only be purchased through this opportunity.

Santa's Breakfast presented by Volvo Edmonton

One of our most popular events of the season, Santa’s Breakfast offers a sit-down breakfast in heated dining domes that seat up to six at the University of Alberta Botanic Garden. Plus, guests will enjoy on-site entertainment and visits from Santa.

Reflected in the “Let it Shine” theme of our 2022 Festival of Trees, we are letting the spirit of our communities, the love of all people and the thrill and excitement of the holidays shine brighter and bolder than ever.

2022 CAUSE

This year, funds raised at the Festival of Trees will support a new Neuro Rehabilitation Innovation Centre at the University of Alberta Hospital. For patients with debilitating brain and spinal cord injuries, early access to advanced rehabilitation is critical to recovery. It’s also hard to get. Currently, the wait to be transferred to an inpatient rehab facility is between two weeks to a month.

With your support, we are going to provide these patients with early access to innovative treatments and state-of-the-art technology – getting them the care they need when they need it the most.
