Yes, Festival of Trees is back this year!

     The much-anticipated Northwoods Partners 2021 Festival of Trees is at long last upon us.  With the generous assistance of our community of supporters, and a little holiday magic, the lobby of the Grand Ely Lodge will once again be transformed into a winter wonderland.  Complete with beautifully decorated Christmas trees, wreaths, and a holiday boutique.  This year’s holiday event will run November 25 through December 5.

     The Magic begins at dawn Thanksgiving morning, when the trees will be lit for the first time and they will remain lit until noon on December 5th.  Thanksgiving evening, at 5 pm Bidding on the Decorated Trees and Wreaths begins.  5pm is also the opening time for the Holiday Boutique, full of beautiful hand-crafted holiday must-haves and giftable items.  Back by popular demand are Buy it Now items and the Chairs for Care.  Each chair has been designed by local artists and crafters. Bidding and the boutique close at noon on Sunday, December 5th.

     While this holiday magic lasts only 11 days, it continues throughout the year in the hearts of those who participate and support the Festival of Trees.  Most of all, the magic continues in the lives of our area seniors that are helped by Northwoods Partners every day.

     Please note that due to COVID restrictions and the ongoing positive caseload in our area, there will be NO Thanksgiving Evening lighting ceremony this year.

Thank You!
