The holidays are back!

For the first time since 2019, Festival of Trees returns as an in-person event at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium during Thanksgiving weekend, November 25th-27th. This three-day holiday celebration benefits the patients, students and programs at Kennedy Krieger Institute and is a great way for families to kick off The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.

Planning Your Visit to Festival of Trees 2022

All ages must have a ticket (Ages 4 and under tickets are FREE, but please get your free ticket through this ticketing page). 

Please arrive at your assigned entry time, or within the following 30 minutes. Once you have entered the Festival, you may stay as long as you would like to enjoy the fun!

Masking is strongly recommended and preferred*

*All staff, vendors and volunteers will be masked for the safety of our patients, students, their families and our guests. Because the staff and volunteers who work the event also work with critically ill patients every day, we ask that those who attend Festival of Trees please keep that in mind and consider our strong recommendation to mask while enjoying Festival of Trees.

We appreciate everyone’s effort to help children and adults with health conditions experience the magic of the holidays in as safe an environment as possible. We are taking extra efforts to create an environment that limits the chance of transmission of the virus that causes COVID-19.  We sincerely appreciate your help to keep our kids safe. Thank you!
