Every year, Victoria Festival of Trees transforms The Fairmont Empress into a lush forest of beautifully decorated trees to raise funds for BC Children's Hospital. Sponsors, local businesses, organizations and individuals of this event come together and decorate trees - in a sometimes wacky, often irreverent and always beautiful fashion. These enchanting trees are then displayed throughout The Fairmont Empress over the holiday season. The 2011 Victoria Festival of Trees was a record breaking event with over $126,000 raised in support of the urgent needs at BC Children's Hospital. More than 15,000 votes were cast for the 77 beautifully decorated trees during the seven weeks at The Fairmont. We look forward to the 21st Victoria Festival of Trees, beginning November 20, 2012 with the kick-off decorating gala, through to January 4, 2013.
