FESTIVAL OF TREES WILL LIGHT UP PERFORMING ARTS CENTRE’S LOBBY
NOVEMBER 29 – DECEMBER 19

 

Burlington, ON – This holiday season The Burlington Performing Arts Centre’s lobby will be lit up with a colourful and festive display of trees that is sure to spark some yuletide enthusiasm in anyone that visits The Centre. The festival is a joint community fundraising initiative by The Burlington Performing Arts Centre and the Arts & Culture Council of Burlington (ACCOB).

Each Christmas Tree is generously sponsored and decorated by a local business or an organization within the community. Patrons and visitors to The Centre will have the opportunity to take one of these stunning trees home by purchasing raffle tickets for the Festival of Trees draw.

All trees will be raffled and winners announced onstage Tuesday, December 19 prior to An Evening with Cathy Jones and Mary Walsh. Proceeds benefit a new BPAC/ACCOB Community Studio Theatre initiative that will provide greater access to The Centre for local community organizations.

The Centre and the Arts & Culture Council of Burlington extend their sincere appreciation and special thanks to Canadian Tire – Burlington Stores, for their generous donation of twenty-five pre-lit Christmas trees. Be sure to look for Canadian Tire’s Classic ‘58 Chevy in Burlington’s Santa Claus Parade on December 3. The truck will be driving the parade route, decorated tree in tow, promoting the Festival of Trees.

Stop by The Burlington Performing Arts Centre to take a stroll through the Festival of Trees and light up your holidays! The Festival of Trees takes place from November 29 to December 19. Visit www.burlingtonpac.ca/what-s-on/community-outreach for full schedule. Don’t forget to purchase raffle tickets at The Centre’s Box Office for a chance to take your favourite tree home.
