Season’s celebrations seen in at the Fairfield Christmas Tree Festival
November 12, 2012 by Mark
The Fairfield Christmas Tree Festival has taken place for the past 31 years, with proceeds going to support local charities. This year, funds will be raised for the Cardinal Shehan Center and the Norma F. Pfriem Breast Cancer Center. A quilt raffle will also be raising funds for Emerge, Inc. – an organization providing services for homeless victims of domestic abuse. Fairfield printing companies are likely to have been called upon to supply such items as raffle tickets to this worthwhile event.
Local designers have decorated several rooms in the mansion which will be available for viewing by the public. Trees and wreaths will be available for sale, as will items in the gift boutique.
There will be several events taking place during the festival. ‘Sharing is Caring’ is a children’s event that will take place on November 30 from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm. There will be plenty of activities taking place during the evening, including face painting, arts and crafts, a magic show, and a visit from Santa. Tickets are $20.
On December 1, the ‘Season To Celebrate’ Holiday Gala will take place from 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm. There will be a cocktail reception, dinner, silent and live auctions, dancing, and door prizes. Tickets are $150, $225, or $300 and cocktail attire is requested. There will also be a wine-tasting event, a traditional tea, and the ‘Festival Favorites’ cookbook will be available for purchase.
The 31st annual Fairfield Christmas Tree Festival will take place at the Burr Homestead from November 29 – December 2. For more information, visit their website.
