City of Aiken Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Department
Announces Festival of Trees


The City of Aiken Visitors Center & Train Museum is seeking participants for its Fifth
Annual Festival of Trees to be held, Friday, December 3rd – Friday, December 31st
(tree lighting is on Friday, December 3rd at 4pm).

Each December, local businesses and organizations decorate holiday trees and
display them at the City of Aiken Visitors Center & Train Museum at 406 Park Ave SE,
Aiken. Visitors vote on their favorite tree, with the winner receiving a holiday-themed
gift basket and their tree featured in an advertisement in the Aiken Standard.

Participation is a great way for businesses and groups to reach new audiences. Last
December alone, the City of Aiken Visitors Center & Train Museum had hundreds of visitors
come through our door to specifically see the trees!

There is no cost to participate, but space is offered on a first come, first serve basis. If
you would like to display a tree, please complete the attached form by Nov.17th and
submit by email to Sheri T. Clemons at sclemons@cityofaikensc.gov

Participants will be notified of acceptance by Nov. 19th.

If your business or organization is interested in supporting this program through sponsorship,
