The 35th annual Holiday Tree Festival

Kick off the holiday season with the 2016 Holiday Tree Festival, which takes place Nov. 19 – 27 at the John S. Knight Center. Admission to the festival is free. Festival hours are Monday - Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Thanksgiving, 2 to 6 p.m.; Friday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Every year, more than 200 decorated trees, 85,000 strings of lights, and countless other holiday creations are displayed at the John S. Knight Center to benefit Akron Children’s Hospital. Proceeds support patient care programs, education and research.

The Holiday Tree Festival has been the volunteers of Akron Children’s Hospital’s gift to the Akron community for more than 30 years and has raised more than $5.2 million for the hospital since beginning in 1982. Last year, the Holiday Tree Festival raised $257,000.
