The Festival of Trees is Greater Danburyís signature holiday event and the largest annual fundraiser for Annís Place.  It was created in 2003 as an invitation to the community to participate in creating a family-friendly holiday gathering that also underwrites the clinical services programs to support and guide anyone on a cancer journey, including patients, family and loved ones.

Over one hundred trees are decorated, judged and awarded prizes. Guests can try to win a fully decorated tree through a weighted raffle (You put your ticket in the trees or other raffle prizes you want to win). Hundreds of other high value raffle prizes are available also!
