The annual Festival of Trees is back for its 40th year celebration! This year there are 25 designer trees, uniquely and beautifully decorated by members of the Dr. Forrest L. Flashman Guild. Each tree honors Seattle Children's Hospital patients and shares their inspirational stories, as well as remind us of the amazing research and miracles happening every day at the hospital.

Proceeds from the Festival of Trees Celebration benefit uncompensated care at Seattle Children’s Hospital and the Seattle Children’s Autism Center.

This year's Family Festival of Trees Celebration is Sunday, November 19 from 1:00-4:00pm at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel. It is free and family friendly- with live music, pictures with Santa, Christmas cookies, & more fun!

The annual Gala with dinner and auction is Saturday, November 18 beginning at 5pm. Click here for tickets & more info.

But come anytime between November 18-29 to check out the trees on display at the hotel.

For information to purchase a tree, visit the website or call 206-678-4749.
