Christmas In Charleston Event

2021 Festival of Trees

About the Festival of Trees
Get ready to feel the joy of the holiday season at the Second Annual Festival of Trees! Hosted by Explore Charleston, the event benefits the cancer patients, survivors and supporters of Dragon Boat Charleston.

Held at the beautiful Charleston Visitor Center on Meeting Street in downtown Charleston, the free event will feature 25 themed and decorated trees and 16 wreaths all decorated in honor or in memory of someone who has battled cancer. Local Charlestonians and visitors alike will stroll through the event to bid on trees and wreaths online to support Dragon Boat Charleston. New this year, the event includes holiday-themed workshops throughout the two months and an opening gala: Sparkles and Spirits on November 19.

The Charleston Visitor Center is open daily from 8:30am to 5:00pm. The event is free and open to the public. Masks are required for entry.
