For more than three decades the Saint Alphonsus Festival of Trees has been our gift to the Boise and Treasure Valley community, to truly enjoy and remember for a lifetime. The Festival of Trees is a celebration of people working together for a greater good.
Funds raised this year will support the Saint Alphonsus Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. One in ten babies is born too soon and may suffer life-threatening and long-term complications. The Saint Alphonsus NICU provides critical, around-the-clock care for these premature and precious infants.
The Saint Alphonsus 2017 Festival of Trees
The Saint Alphonsus 2017 Festival of Trees has been a Boise and Treasure Valley tradition for the past 34 years with more than 25k attendees annually. The Festival of Trees is held during Thanksgiving week and marks the beginning of the holiday season for many families in Boise. All year long, more than 500 volunteers and hundreds of Treasure Valley businesses and individuals plan the Festival of Trees. They give their time, talent and treasure to sponsor the Festival's fantastic trees and wreaths.
