Festival of Trees is an event that raises funds investing in The Arc Davidson County & Greater Nashville and The Arc Williamson County’s programs and services for children and adults with a disability. It is a beautiful and festive start to the holiday season. Decorated trees are a visible reminder of sponsors’ impact in the community and concern for individuals with disabilities who live here. The trees will be viewed throughout the holiday season by the community, hotel guests, and many music lovers in Nashville and surrounding counties.
Festival of Trees is a perfect event to engage employees and friends in the festivities of the season. Trees are creatively decorated by sponsoring businesses, organizations and individuals. Each sponsor submits a theme (could be specific business themed!) and description of decorations they propose to use, which are reviewed for approval by the planning committee. Sponsors decorate their tree before they go on display for the public to enjoy.
The viewing party will be on Thursday evening, December 2 at Holiday Inn – Vanderbilt in Nashville. Sponsors will receive a quantity of tickets corresponding to their sponsorship level. Guests will enjoy live music, heavy hors d’œuvres, cash bar (plus one drink ticket/guest), and a silent auction. The party is also open to guests who purchase individual tickets at $20 each or self-advocates at $10 each. Winners of the prizes for Holiday Inn-Best of The Festival Tree and Most Creative Tree will be announced at the Viewing Party.
The Preview Party will be in the hotel’s lobby and adjoining meeting rooms showcasing the trees’ lights and decorations. Guests will also have the opportunity to visit the famous Commodore Grill and enjoy an evening of music with local and famous songwriters. The hotel hosts various events and weddings during the holiday season, offering opportunity for trees to be viewed by many local and event guests for several weeks.
