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.
