The festival offers visitors an opportunity to view a nice collection of Christmas trees and wreaths from November 20 - December 14. Each item is crafted and donated by local North Georgia individuals, churches and businesses. You can simply walk among and enjoy looking at the decorated items or you can place a bid on particular trees or wreaths that would fit well in a place that you want to decorate for Christmas.
The bidding is in the form of a silent auction. At the close of the auction, December 14th at 2PM, the winners are able take their prize trees and wreaths home. All of proceeds of the auction are donated to the White County United Way and benefit more than 20 charity organizations that serve White County.
The Festival of Trees is held at Babyland General Hosptial. Admission to the event is free. If you time things right you can also enjoy other local Christmas time events. These include the Helen Christmas parade, the lighting of the village, White Christmas on the square and Lighted Parade in Cleveland, and the Tour of Homes.
