Festival of Trees is an iconic event, and Kennedy Krieger is creative and proactive in promoting it. The 2024 Festival of Trees will be extensively promoted through paid and donated media placements, a robust public relations and social media campaign, email and direct mail marketing, and the Festival of Trees promotional website. The paid media plan is targeted, reaching families across the Baltimore metropolitan area.


Advertising and Public Relations


The 2023 Festival of Trees marketing plan included placements with 25 media outlets, including ads and promotions on local radio stations, a television PSA, print advertisements in magazines and newspapers, and digital advertising and sponsored articles on event and lifestyle websites. These placements generated millions of impressions in the Baltimore metropolitan area.

Public Relations

A comprehensive Public Relations campaign will be developed to ensure that the event and its sponsors receive maximum exposure. This will include calendar and news releases, as well as media pitches that will result in story/interview placements.

In 2023, the public relations campaign for Festival of Trees resulted in 156 media hits, with a total estimated audience reach of more than 257 million people​.

Festival again captured the interest of our local TV stations and their audiences: 62 percent of our media hits came from broadcast coverage. The remaining media hits were online but also included print coverage in the Baltimore Sun and Baltimore Magazine.​

Social Media

In 2023, Festival of Trees was featured on Kennedy Krieger’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn pages. A strategic organic and paid campaign included pre-event, day-of and post-event coverage and ad flights.

These were posted on four platforms: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram, resulting in a total of 73,219 impressions.
