This year marks the 32nd annual Festival of Trees.  Despite the many obstacles the pandemic has
thrown us, we are delighted to confirm that our Festival of Trees, in support of the Greeley Philharmonic Orchestra, will continue this year in a reimagined way.  All of the important aspects will remain the same.  The same joy and spirit this Greeley holiday tradition has brought us for the past 31 years will continue with some new and innovative twists.  Rest assured that things will remain festive while keeping the health and safety of the community, our sponsors, and our volunteers/staff the highest priority.

Santa has told us the Festival of Trees must go on and to get busy planning our beautiful trees and reimagined safe events.  We will have no more than 50 timed/ticketed entries into the festival of trees displays at any given time.  For this reason, we are extending the FOT event to 13 days, Nov. 27-Dec. 11.  All entertainment will be in the Monfort Concert Hall, no lobby entertainment.  This entertainment will be included in the FOT’s cost of admission.  Music from
these performances can be heard and enjoyed by patrons in the lobby who chose not to watch the entertainment in MCH, but rather enjoy the trees for an extended 30 minutes.  The lobbies, Monfort Concert Hall, restrooms, and high touch surfaces will be disinfected in-between each session.
