Special Hours for Patients, Students and Families of Kennedy Krieger

Experience Festival of Trees without the crowds!

Saturday, November 26, 8–9:30 am

Holiday fun returns! For the first time since 2019, Festival of Trees returns as an in-person event at the Maryland State Fairgrounds during Thanksgiving weekend. Hundreds of designer-decorated trees, wreaths and gingerbread houses will be on sale and displayed throughout the Cow Palace, which will be transformed into a winter wonderland. This three-day holiday celebration benefits the patients and students at Kennedy Krieger and kicks off the most wonderful time of the year for families throughout the region.

Children enjoy a ride at Festival of Trees.

Planning Your Visit to Festival of Trees 2022

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!
