Celebrate the Season at Festival of Trees

The 11th Annual Festival of Trees is a showcase of beautiful trees decorated by local businesses, individuals, and organizations. These trees are auctioned and raffled, so attendees could win a tree containing goodies like gift cards, concert tickets, and more! Celebrate the most wonderful time of the year from Wednesday, November 30th at 11am to Sunday, December 4th at 6pm.
See the Nowhere Band Play Classic Songs
As part of the Festival of Trees, SBDAC presents an outdoor concert with the Nowhere Band, a premier Beatles tribute act.
