Ann's Place Festival of Trees Opens Friday With Tribute to Peggy & Rudy Marconi

Come kick off the Holiday Season at the 15th Annual Festival of Trees to benefit Ann’s Place! This year’s Festival is November 17th-19th and is will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Danbury. Since its inception, Festival of Trees has raised over $2.56 Million to support area cancer patients, survivors, their loved ones and anyone touched by cancer. It is Ann’s Place’s signature fundraiser and supports 20% of Ann’s Place’s annual free services.

Highlights will include an Opening Night Tribute on Friday 6:30-10:30 pm honoring Rudy and Peggy Marconi, passionate supporters of Ann’s Place, public service superstars and tireless champions for the cause. Cocktails and dinner-by-the-bite will be served up along with star studded Broadway performances by Katie Diamond, Daniel Levine, Bryan Perri and Daniela Sikora. Don’t miss the auction and raffles too!

Festival days are filled with live entertainment on the hour, over 100 Holiday trees, amazing prizes, grand raffles, Market Place for shopping along with specialty vendors and local craftsmen. Get in the Holiday spirit with us and join the excitement and fun!

All weekend, children can join the Gathering of the Galaxies (Character parties) and be amazed by an intergalactic magician, Tom Pesce, while partaking in interactive entertainment on Saturday. A new Children’s Winter Village features activities including crafts, face painting, tattoos, LEGO building and more from 10 am-4 pm Saturday and Sunday.

Play it casual Saturday night by bringing your friends to enjoy live music by Future Tense while meeting the brewers at our Taps & Trees Craft Beer Fest, along with dinner-by-the-bite and dessert from 6:30-10:30 pm.
