“Winter Wonderful” is the theme for the 22nd Annual Festival of Trees, Riverside Theatre’s largest Education Program fundraiser.

Considered Vero Beach’s premier holiday event, this three-day festival transforms Riverside’s campus into a lighted holiday wonderland filled with beautifully decorated trees, gingerbread houses, wreaths, vendor booths, arts and crafts, live performances, an “ice” skating rink, and even meals with Santa!

Vendors selling holiday decor and much more are spread throughout the Forest. The gingerbread village, a magical mix of large and small creations, is always a focal point in the display area and completes any home holiday décor.
