The spectacular holiday event that supports the local cancer patients and survivors will take place from November 17-19, 2023, at The Summit in Danbury located at 100 Reserve Road. 

The Summit will transform into a magical winter wonderland filled with a forest of beautifully decorated trees, each representing a story of resilience and triumph over cancer. Lovingly created by local artisans, these extraordinary trees will ignite the holiday spirit in everyone while serving as a symbol of hope, reminding us of the strength and courage displayed by those affected by cancer.

This year's Festival of Trees includes a wide array of holiday activities for individuals of all ages. Live music and entertainment, raffles, shopping, and children's craft activities will be featured throughout the weekend.
