More than a premier holiday event, Festival of Trees is the annual fundraiser for Quad City Arts, a local nonprofit arts organization. It takes more than 3,500 volunteers, 650 designers, 3,500 CenterStage entertainers, and 150 sponsors to make Festival of Trees a time-honored and beloved Quad City tradition. Festival is recognized as one of the top events of its kind in North America, raising several million dollars in support of local arts since 1986. More than 100,000 people experience Festival annually, making it one of the largest attractions in the Quad Cities. This fundraiser makes it possible for Quad City Arts to provide quality arts programming and support year-round for the residents of six counties in Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois.


Festival of Trees has attractions for the entire family! Guests can enjoy browsing the beautiful holiday displays designed by talented local designers, shopping for a present in our Tinsel Treasures Gift Shop, watching performances by local dance groups on CenterStage, listening to a story by the Book Tree, visiting Santa in the North Pole children’s activity center or stopping by the TreatShoppe to have a tasty treat.
