Festival Of Trees

Kinderhaven Presents its
20th Annual

This is Kinderhaven’s biggest fundraiser of the year.

The Festival of Trees is Sandpoint’s most anticipated holiday event of the year! The celebration consists of three incredible events spanning across three days at the Bonner County Fairgrounds:

Thursday, Dec 5  – Saturday, Dec 7
3 fabulous FESTIVAL OF TREES events to choose from…

Family Night:  December 5 | 4:00 – 6:00 pm

Our Family Night is open to the public and free of charge!  We welcome you to bring your family to the Fairgrounds for hot cocoa, cookies, Santa and to enjoy all the magically decorated trees!

Holiday Luncheon:  December 6 | 11:00 am – 1:30 pm

This event consists of a silent auction, after which you can head over to the main event area for lunch and viewing of the live decorated trees.
Tickets are $50 and Table Sponsorships are $650 (seats eight people).


The Grand Gala:  December 7 | 5:30 pm

Doors open at 5:30 pm at which time our guests will help themselves to some hors d’oevres and a no-host bar as they peruse the silent auction items. Once the silent auction is over, guests will move to the main event for a wonderful dinner catered by Ivano’s Ristorante and a live auction of the fabulous trees and packages.
Tickets are $85 and Table Sponsorships are $1,400 (seats eight people).


All proceeds benefit Kinderhaven, a local group foster home and emergency shelter for abused and neglected children.  Your donation truly makes a difference in the lives of the children who pass through our doors.

All Events are at the Bonner County Fairgrounds.
