The Festival of Trees began in 2008 as the Carrie Tingley Hospital Foundation’s signature Holiday Fundraiser. Today, the Festival is a holiday tradition in Albuquerque and the largest Festival of Trees in the state of New Mexico.
This two day event is free to attend and offers something for both children and adults. More than 10,000 people visit the event each year and have the opportunity to purchase and view beautifully decorated trees and wreaths, enjoy holiday entertainment by school choirs, bands, and local professionals. Children can get their picture taken with Santa and make holiday crafts.
Proceeds from the Festival of Trees support the Carrie Tingley Hospital Foundation’s programs for children with disabilities across New Mexico.
