About the Festival
Celebrating the sights and sounds of the holidays
The Festival of Trees & Lights is a volunteer-based organization under the auspices of the Children's Hospital Foundation that creates awareness, raises funds and affirms the role of Kosair Children's Hospital in the lives of the children of our community.
In 1989, several active board members and volunteers supporting Kosair Children’s Hospital decided to stage a Festival of Trees as a holiday fundraiser. That simple idea has grown by leaps and bounds. Now, the Festival of Trees & Lights is a major regional event that will raise critical funds for the children’s hospital. The weekend before Thanksgiving, the indoor gallery of Louisville Slugger Field becomes a winter wonderland of events for nearly 5,000 attendees.
