The Festival of Trees will once again open the holiday season at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center, 2301 First Street, in downtown Fort Myers. In just three years, the celebration has become one of southwest Florida's premier holiday events. Goodwill industries of Southwest Florida organizes the Festival. The magical display of holiday trees will be open Friday evening, December 3, from 6 - 11p.m., during Art Walk. There is a suggested donation of $5.
The week-long festival begins the day after Thanksgiving and showcases beautiful trees and lavish wreaths decorated by community organiztions and businesses. The event concludes on Friday, December 3, and the "Tux and Trees Gala" is held the next evening. The Gala is a black-tie fundraiser for the Southwest Florida Goodwill Foundation.
All Art and Music Walks at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center are sponsored by Pamela Templeton and Fort Myers Toyota, the Family Store.
