The Baby Fold’s Festival of Trees is a long-standing community tradition that has been providing critical funding to local children’s programs for over 27 years. Your support through the purchase of beautifully decorated trees, wreaths, or holiday décor in our silent auction helps families and children in need. The Baby Fold’s programs are necessary to the health, well-being, and future of our community’s youth. The funds raised by The Festival of Trees help create a better future for 1200 children every year. Thank you for your support.
The 2020 HYBRID Festival of Trees will be a holiday marketplace offering both virtual and safein-person options.
The Baby Fold’s new mobileauction website will allow you to browse, bid, and purchase auction items on your mobile device from the safety and convenience of your home beginning November 15, 2020. You’ll find that link here coming soon!
For those comfortable in a store environment, the beautifully decorated trees and décor will also be on display at Eastland Mall in our pop-up Christmas marketplace (by Kohl's in the former MC Sports) from November 16 – 21 with curbside pickup available for auction winners on Sunday, November 22.
The Baby Fold is committed to the health of the community. So, there will be no events or entertainment in our Christmas marketplace this year. You can expect a beautiful, one-of-a-kind holiday display that is a delight for the eyes and a blessing for local children.
The Baby Fold will create a safe and enjoyable environment for our community; leveraging technology to make bidding easier, safer, and more convenient than ever before. All bidding will take place on your mobile phone through our easy online auction website to create a paperless environment. All safety guidelines recommended by the Illinois Department of Public Health at the time the Hybrid Festival of Trees begins will be followed. This includes wearing masks, limiting guest capacity, enhanced cleaning measures, and social distancing.
The success of the Festival of Trees is credited largely to our many sponsorswho give generously as an investment in our community and as an excellent marketing opportunity. Please visit and support the organizations that support this year's HYBRID Festival of Trees!
