Festival of Trees
Every year over 15,000 people visit the Guelph River Run Centre’s Christmas Tree Forest also referred to as the Festival of Trees. Volunteers and professional designers partner together to decorate more than 50 trees, which have been sponsored by local businesses, individuals and clubs. All of the proceeds from this event go towards supporting the residents and programs at St. Joseph’s Health Centre, so you can feel good about giving back while enjoying some stunningly lit trees. The Festival runs from November 20th to December 30th and for those who would like to join the team of tree decorators, call (519) 824-6000 x4289.
