28th Annual Christmas Tree Festival Return to Lethbridge This November after Two-Year Pandemic Pause

September 21, 2022

After two years of cancellations, the Chinook Regional Hospital Foundation announced the return of the 28th Annual Christmas Tree Festival presented by Stringam LLP, taking place at the Lethbridge Enmax Centre from November 20 – 23, 2022.
During this year’s four-day Festival, the Enmax Centre will be transformed into a whimsical Winter Wonderland by caring hearts and hands, featuring beautifully decorated trees, wreaths and displays, festive activities, and a glitzy Gala that is sure to enchant VIP guests – all made possible thanks to the extraordinary generosity of our sponsors.
“The pandemic has been so hard on everyone and has made even more people realize the importance of supporting health care,” said Allan Bartolcic, Executive Director at the Chinook Regional Hospital Foundation. “We are thrilled to have so many sponsors, decorators, and supporters return, eager to help make this year extra special as we raise funds for local health care projects and needs.” 
In 2019, over 4,000 people experienced the beautiful Winter Wonderland that was made possible by the incredible generosity of sponsors, and twenty-five talented Decorating Teams. The event raised over $160,000 for the Chinook Regional Hospital Foundation, directly and richly impacting health care in our community.
This year, the community is invited to join us in rediscovering the magic of the holidays with the return of the Christmas Tree Festival!
