Festival of Trees

November 29 | 10:00 am to December 02 | 4:45 pm

Kennedy Krieger Institute’s 29th annual Festival of Trees was a huge success! Over Thanksgiving weekend, the Maryland State Fairgrounds’ Cow Palace was transformed into a winter wonderland, featuring nearly 900 spectacular holiday trees, wreaths and gingerbread houses created by local artists, corporations and schools.

More than 45,000 attendees kicked off the holiday season at the Maryland State Fairgrounds with live entertainment, princess visits, shopping, a silent auction, pony rides, a train garden, and, of course, Santa!

All funds raised from Festival of Trees support Kennedy Krieger Institute’s patient care, research and training, special education and community programs.

Special thanks to all the volunteers, vendors, entertainers, staff, designers, attendees and sponsors, especially our title sponsor BB&T,  who helped make this event possible. We could not have done it without you!
