at the Northfork Lodge

The McCall Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau presents the Festival of Trees. This spectacular holiday show is filled with decorated Christmas trees, wreaths and tabletop decor available to purchase by silent auction bid PLUS…one-of-a-kind creations from local and regional artisans selling beautiful art, jewelry, pottery and other handicrafts to jump start your holiday shopping! A one-time entry fee of $5 per person gives you access to both days of the public events (kids are free).

In the spirit of the holiday season we would like our community organizations to receive proceeds from the Festival of Trees auction bids! Each tree, wreath or decor item selects a charity or non-profit of their choice to receive 100% of all the proceeds from the bids! In addition, cash donation boxes at each of the trees will be available with every dollar in the box going directly to the chosen organization. The Chamber will award prizes in several categories including: People’s Choice (vote online at the McCall Chamber Facebook page), Best in Show, A Child’s Christmas Wonder, Traditional Christmas, and Non-Traditional Christmas.

NEW FOR 2018

Santa’s workshop: Keep the kids entertained with arts and crafts, storytime and a chance to meet and mingle with Elsa and Holly the Elf.

Festival of Trees Gala: We are giving this year’s event a proper send-off with a brand new gala event. With entry to this ticketed event, enjoy wine, dessert, a raffle and a live auction of select trees, wreaths and tabletop décor, as well as live music from jazz trio, Merchants of Groove! This will also be the time for final bidding on all silent auction entries. Limited tickets will be available for purchase: $25 per person / $40 per couple.
