What is The Giving Tree Festival?
The Giving Tree Festival presented by the Park City Rotary Club, which debuted in 2015, is an annual auction of beautifully designed holiday trees benefiting local non-profit organizations in Summit County.
Park City is a generous giving community with its many non-profits helping to frame a better quality of life for all through their dedication to local causes. The Giving Tree Festival is a community celebration with public invited to enjoy the two-week Parade of Trees at participating local business hosts from mid-November to early-December. It features custom-crafted trees and other holiday items for sale to local businesses and individuals through an online auction. Proceeds will benefit local non-profits. Each holiday item is unique, crafted with love and care, oftentimes decorated with special bonuses. It’s a fun way for the community to kick-off the holiday season while benefiting important local causes.
