The Feztival of Trees is a family-friendly event that takes place at the Tripoli Shrine, 3000 W. Wisconsin Ave. from Saturday, Nov. 20 through Saturday, Nov. 27.

Every year, the Tripoli Shriners Feztival of Trees raises thousands of dollars for the Tripoli Shrine Center and the work they do. Now’s the time for your company or organization to get in on the holiday magic. And best of all, it’s creative, fun and doubles as a teambuilding event. #winwin

Here’s the deal: Your team decorates an artificial, LED-lit holiday tree in whatever style best expresses your group: traditional, whimsical – the sky’s the limit. Then the tree is raffled off during the Feztival of Trees.

During the week-long event, guests are welcome to check out the decorated trees, snap a photo with Santa, watch a choreographed light show, enjoy treats from the Food Cafe, partake in a 50 / 50 raffle and more. 

To donate a decorated tree submit an application by Friday, Oct. 29. Space is limited. Setup times will be prearranged with your organization and will take place between Monday, Nov. 15 through Thursday, Nov. 18.

OnMilwaukee is already brainstorming our ideas for our tree, please join us in the fez-tivities!
