Salt Lake City, Utah (Good Things Utah) — Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree! The annual Festival of Trees benefitting medical care for kids at Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital is returning to an in-person event, complete with trees, wreaths, visits with Santa Claus, scones, and the locally renown Festival of Trees fudge. 

The Festival of Trees is a more than 50-year-old Utah holiday tradition. It will be held November 30th thru December 3rd at the Mountain America Exposition Center in Sandy, Utah. Funds raised will support Intermountain Healthcare’s Primary Promise to create the nation’s model health system for children.

“The needs of the children in our communities are great, and Primary Promise is an extensive and innovative way to address those needs,” said Dustin Lipson, administrator of Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital. “We look forward to welcoming the community to the Festival of Trees to start the holiday season and to help children at Primary Children’s Hospital and beyond.”

The Festival of Trees, presented by Intermountain Foundation, is brought to life by a dedicated 80-member volunteer board, who enlists the talents of thousands of families, organizations, and businesses throughout Utah and neighboring states.
