Festival of Trees

The Festival of Trees is Riverside’s largest education fundraiser, with all proceeds supporting our scholarship and performing arts education programs for kids.

In 2017, over 4,600 festival attendees reveled in the magic of the holiday season. Their support helped us provide $50,000 in scholarships to children in need. For every $600 raised in 2017, a child with financial need was able to attend Riverside Theatre Education camps and classes for a full year.
