Festival of Trees - Victoria - Victoria

The Fairmont Empress
Victoria, British Columbia
V8W 1W5

Daily from November 19, 2014 to January 6, 2015

Every year, Victoria's Festival of Trees transforms The Fairmont Empress into a lush forest of beautifully decorated trees to raise funds for BC Children's Hospital.

Sponsors, local businesses, organizations & individuals of this event come together & decorate trees - in a sometimes wacky, often irreverent & always beautiful fashion.

These enchanting trees are then displayed throughout The Fairmont Empress over the holiday season.

The 2013 Victoria Festival of Trees raised over $205,400 in support of the urgent needs at BC Children's Hospital.

More than 20,000 votes were cast for the 73 beautifully decorated trees during the seven weeks at The Fairmont.
