Are you a girl scout troop, boy scout troop or school looking to participate in the Festival of Trees & Lights? We have a new and exciting opportunity for you this year! Please contact us to hear about this exciting opportunity.

Businesses and other organizations can help too.

We are in need of local businesses for our new Louisville Business Row!

Your business is invited to decorate a 2-foot or 3-foot tree for this year’s 24th anniversary of the Festival of Trees & Lights. Your tree, complete with business signage will be on display at the festival. Trees are offered for sale to the public, so use your creativity to design the tree that tops them all! You can also include items from your business to showcase your products or services.

Ideas include:

  • Gift certificates
  • Product samples
  • Autographed merchandise
  • ... or anything else that fits on your tree or wreath!

Assistance from a designer is available, or you can simply decorate your own tree or wreath. If you have additional questions about the new Louisville Business Row, email us.

Without the artistic talent and creativity of volunteer tree and wreath designers, the Festival of Trees & Lights would not be as successful!
