An annual tradition in downtown Buffalo now for 37 years, this event is supported and organized by our community and is the main holiday fundraiser in support of Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo. 

The year’s proceeds will be earmarked for the new John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital. The Hospital’s move to the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus and its new design will accomodate advances in medicine by providing more space for outpatient care, greater opportunity for recruitment of physicians and the ability for employees and visitors to get from one place to another — faster.

As Western New York’s premier holiday event, volunteers created a glittering display of beautifully decorated trees, wreaths, mantle & window displays, a Boutique filled with holiday home décor and stunning gifts. Also featured is a A Special Presentation of The Holiday Boutique & Reindeer Winter Wonderland.

The Festival of Trees has been helping the hospital set the standard in pediatric medical care by donating more than $6 million in support of important programs, facility improvements and groundbreaking technology. In previous years, the Festival of Trees has raised money to help with the purchase a $1.5 million CT Scan, purchased a state-of-the-art Ultrasound Machine for $200,000 for the hospital, funding for $8 million Renovation and Expansion of Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and $5 million Renovation and Expansion for the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.
