BLOOMSBURG, Pa. – Beginning November 25th, more than eighty Christmas trees decorated by community groups, families, and local businesses will be displayed during the Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble’s annual TreeFest! Visitors can enjoy the dazzling trees and festive activities in the beautiful Caldwell Consistory at 150 Market Street.
During this annual holiday event, locally grown trees, many of which are donated, are sponsored by businesses and patrons and decorated by community groups. Gift cards, toys, food, and clothing are also often gifted. At the end of the event, local families in need will take home a tree with lights and decorations for the holidays, along with gift cards. The toys are donated to Toys for Tots, and the food will go to the Bloomsburg Food
TreeFest will be open to the public Fridays from 4-8pm, Saturdays 10am-6pm, and Sundays 12-4pm from November 25th until December 4th. Admission is $5, with children 12 and under free! All ticket proceeds benefit the Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble.
