Plan to Attend the Sandestin Festival of Trees This Year
What Is the Festival of Trees?
The Sandestin Festival of Trees is not just a display of trees. It’s a contest! For more than six years, local non-profit organizations have competed to create the most glorious Christmas trees for a chance to win $5,000 in cash prizes. The festival showcases more than a dozen trees each year (starting the Tuesday before Thanksgiving) and a panel of judges votes for the best tree. The overall winner and People’s Choice winner are announced on November 24th.
Did you know? You can bring the whole family to the festival! It’s a great opportunity to marvel at decorations with loved ones and participate in 30A’s community life.
What Else Is There to Do?
The Sandestin Festival of Trees takes place at Grand Boulevard Town Center, which offers a myriad of activities and holiday specials. While you decide which tree you want to vote for, visit a few retailers and restaurants next door! Complimentary refreshments are available, so don’t hesitate to grab a drink while you learn more about participating organizations.
Other Christmas Events in Sandestin
The Christmas fun doesn’t end with the Festival of Trees. In fact, Grand Boulevard offers several holiday activities and events you don’t want to miss. Come meet Santa at the Grand Park every Saturday and take pictures. (Arts and crafts are available for your little ones while they wait in line!) If you are traveling with your significant other, consider taking a romantic, horse-drawn carriage ride and marvel at the light displays all around Town Center. You might even meet a few carolers on your way!
