About Festival of Trees
Festival of Trees, presented by Scotiabank, brings local businesses and organizations along with members of the community together in support of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. Trees get sponsored and spruced up to go on display for everyone to enjoy over the holiday.
This year, funds will go toward oncology research at BC Children’s Hospital. You can participate by sponsoring a tree or donating to support the events held at our five locations across BC.
