2016 Festival of Trees Invitation


Thanks to an ongoing partnership between the Village of Montgomery and the Greater Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce, hundreds of area residents come out each year to share in the spirit of the season at the Village of Montgomery’s annual Tree Lighting event. This year’s event will be held on Sunday, December 4th at 5:00 p.m.

Visitors will welcome Santa and Mrs. Claus as they arrive on a fire truck, enjoy free cookies and hot cocoa and listen to area school children perform some of their favorite Christmas songs. Visitors are also able to enjoy beautiful Christmas trees displayed throughout the Village Hall and vote for their favorite tree.

The Festival of Trees began in 2011, and was such a huge hit that it is now an annual event. This is an opportunity for local businesses to join in the festivities by displaying a decorated tree in Village Hall, promote their business to hundreds of area residents, and possibly earn the coveted title of “Favorite Decorated Tree” in the Village.

Trees will be on display on December 4th at the annual Tree Lighting event, and will remain on display for community viewing and voting through December 22nd. All trees will adorn the halls and lobbies of the Village Hall. There is no charge to participate.

The Festival of Trees provides a great opportunity for businesses to reach out to the community. Businesses are encouraged to decorate their tree in a creative way that promotes the business and the products or services offered.

Businesses interested in providing a tree for the Festival of Trees can call Toula Coffey at 630-896-8080 x 9023 for additional information and an application form. Space is limited to 20 trees and is being offered on a first-come, first served basis. Tree setup will take place on December 2nd from 8am to 8pm at the Village Hall.
