The Saskatoon Festival of Trees is a community event kicking off the holiday season for 36 years – since 1986. The Festival of Trees has become a family favourite in Saskatoon and a seasonal tradition for thousands of people.

​Organizers are thrilled to announce that $40,000 was donated to the Foundation from the 2021 Festival of Trees. Funds supported Operating Room needs through Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation’s Equip for Excellence campaign. Thank you to sponsors, designers, volunteers and visitors who helped to make this happen!
