For 24 years, The Saratoga Festival of Trees has remained the premier annual fundraiser benefiting Catholic Charities of Saratoga, Warren and Washington counties.

From December 4 – 8, 2019, the city of Saratoga Springs will come together to celebrate the holiday season. The Saratoga Springs City Center will be transformed into a winter fantasy filled with the bright colors and twinkling lights we all adore. Between the many events, including Family Day Breakfast and Sundaes with Santa and the Preview Reception, the Festival is a joyously fun way to kick off the holiday season for children and adults alike.

The Festival’s main attraction is a wonderland of over 250 delightfully decorated trees, wreaths and centerpieces all donated and designed by community sponsors. Visitors are encouraged to savor in this visual feast and experience the magical moments that fill our spirit with hope and gladness every holiday season.

Every holiday season there are twinkling trees, festive wreaths and softly falling snowflakes. Families come together, friends travel from afar, and a community decorates its streets with the lights and colors of the season. For many of us, these are the sights and sounds of the season.

For some, however, the season brings a reminder of the difficulty of keeping jobs, supporting the needs of children, locating affordable housing, and finding reliable health care. These are not a group of “other;” rather, they are our neighbors, friends and even our own family members.

It is with the spirit of gratitude for the blessings in our lives, and desire to support others, that the Saratoga Festival of Trees invites the community to revel in the spirit of a holiday wonderland and benefit the mission of Catholic Charities.  


The Festival of Trees is made possible due to the generous support of our corporate sponsors and volunteers.
