The Festival of Trees Committee is committed to helping stop the spread of COVID-19. To provide a safe environment for patrons, please do not attend these events if you are feeling ill or showing signs of COVID-19 or have had exposure to the virus. Due to the higher numbers of cases in our area, Festival of Trees is requiring all attendees at all public performances to wear masks even if vaccinated as there will be visitors of all ages as well as entertainers singing and performing. We appreciate your understanding as we work to provide a fun and festive event for our community.

Preview Gala

The Preview Gala, scheduled for Thursday evening, December 2nd, is a well attended cocktail reception that both opens the exhibit and ushers in the Wolfeboro holiday season. Wine and beer are provided and local caterers and restaurants serve samples of their best fare.

Thursday, December 2, 2021
Six o’clock to eight o’clock in the evening

Tickets $65 by advanced reservation.

The Festival of Trees committee has decided to send our invitations to the Gala via email to deliver them more quickly and to save on postage and printing. This will make it possible for us to have more funds to give to this year's beneficiaries.


COVID-19 Safety Policy for all Gala attendees:

After much consideration of ways to reduce any risk of spreading COVID-19 at the Preview Gala, the Festival of Trees committee has decided to require that all Gala attendees must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Our goal is to provide a safe event for both Gala attendees and volunteers. Each attendee will be required to present the COVID-19 vaccination card that was issued at the time of immunization along with his/her ticket. No one will be admitted without a ticket or proof of vaccination. Refunds will not be issued.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19 up to fourteen days prior to the Preview Gala, or you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, we ask that you not attend the Gala to protect others from becoming infected.
