The TSF Festival of Trees is a new, family-friendly opportunity to support the Texas Shakespeare Festival. The two-day event will be held in Downtown Kilgore right after Thanksgiving, November 29th and 30th. 

Beautifully decorated holiday trees, wreaths, and table decorations will be on display, some available for purchase (via silent auction) and some available to win in a drawing. The event will be free and open to the public, with tickets to enter the drawings available at very reasonable prices. Father Christmas will be there to greet the children (and the young at heart) and local artist Lynn Wells will be doing on-site live portraits that will be available for purchase.

We are seeking businesses and individuals who would like to donate a decorated tree, wreath, or table decoration. This is a great way to spread some holiday joy while also supporting the arts in East Texas. Do you enjoy a little healthy, holiday competition? All tree entries will be judged and/or voted on, and the Best Decorated and People’s Choice award winners will be announced at our special Twas the Night Before the Auction Sponsors and Tree Participants reception.

We will have more details and entry forms coming soon!
