Five is the magic number for Tripoli Shrine Center’s beloved Feztival of Trees. The indoor, family-friendly event celebrates five golden rings this year and costs only $5 for adults – it's free for kids.

Feztival of Trees takes place at the stunning Tripoli Shrine, 3000 W. Wisconsin Ave., on Saturday, Nov. 19 through Saturday, Nov. 26. Free parking is available in their well-lit, adjacent parking lot.

During the week-long event, guests walk through a winter wonderland of over 50 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 purchase raffle tickets to win the fully decorated trees – and all the gifts under them.

The drawings will take place the evening of Saturday, Nov. 26 so winners can enjoy their tree throughout the holiday season. 

Sponsored trees this year include OnMilwaukee, Associated Bank, Holz Chevrolet, Stein's Garden Center and more.
