Main Stage

All the great entertainment happens on the Main Stage at Festival!

Gingerbread Village

Gingerbread Village, presented by Illinois Prairie Community Foundation and Tom and Ellen Howe, provides some of the best sights and smells at the Festival of Trees.  Icing snow and icicles, shredded wheat roofs and candy cane doorways all come together in a beautiful and tasty display of gingerbread artistry.


Enchanted Forest

Although there is definitely something for everyone at the Festival of Trees, we don’t want to forget the real reason people come to see us – it is certainly to take in all of the beautiful 4 foot and 7 foot trees! Whether you plan to bid on your favorite tree, or purchase a tree at the buy-it-now price, the Enchanted Forest has many to choose from. Keep in mind that we sold every single 7 foot tree last year, so do not miss your chance! While you support The Baby Fold, you can leave with a lasting memory your family can gather around for years to come!

Celebrity Place

A collection of rare items and memorabilia from celebrities near and far as well as unique decorations for holidays throughout the year!  We can’t wait to see what rare celebrity items will be available for bidding this year!  You will get a glimpse of Hollywood and your own brush with fame!

CEFCU’s Jingle Bell Junction

A special area for kids of all ages, featuring crafts, face painting, games, entertainment, snowball fights and much more. Let the kids burn off some steam after taking in the trees!
