Festival of Trees and Winter Faire

Festival of Trees

We are ushering in the season with our second annual Festival of Trees and Winter Faire. The four-day event begins with a beautiful display of trees and ends with a holiday bazaar with lots of shopping, drawings, and good cheer.

Visit the Trees

Enjoy the wonder of the season by stopping by to see a sparkling display of trees donated by UConn Health faculty, staff, students, and Auxiliary members. The trees will be on display from Tuesday, December 4 through Thursday, December 6, on the Mezzanine Level of the University Tower. Each beautifully decorated tree will go home with a lucky winner in our Festival of Trees and Winter Faire drawing.

Shop Our Holiday Bazaar

Join us for all your holiday shopping at our one-day holiday bazaar on Friday, December 7, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., in the Food Court, Main Building. The event will feature a variety of local crafters and artists offering unique holiday gift ideas, home décor, personalized ornaments, and more. While you’re there, be sure to enter our fan favorite holiday basket drawing.

Donate a Tree or Basket

Support the event by decorating and donating a tree or basket reflecting the season, a theme, or interest. The key is to be imaginative! Best of all, every beautifully decorated tree and basket will go home with a lucky winner in our Festival of Trees and Winter Faire drawing. Winners will be announced on Friday, December 7, at 3 p.m.
