Christmas Tree Festival

Join us for our annual Christmas Tree Festival. A shimmering spectacle of our community's generosity.

Are you ready to add a little extra sparkle to your holiday season? The 29th annual Christmas Tree Festival is back and merrier—and brighter—than ever!

The Chinook Regional Hospital Foundation’s Christmas Tree Festival is the highlight of the holiday season here in Lethbridge. This family-friendly festival brings the community together to celebrate the warmth and spirit of Christmas, while shining a light on the importance of supporting critical life-saving healthcare in our community. 

Running from November 19-22, the festival will transform the Lethbridge ENMAX Centre into a shimmering winter wonderland. You and your loved ones will stroll through the twinkling Christmas trees and glimmering wreaths, and enjoy an ice-skating adventure. The glitz continues to shine right until the very end, wrapping up with the fundraising gala and auction

Last year’s festival raised more than $170,000 for the Chinook Regional Hospital Foundation, which directly supports innovative equipment and programming for the Chinook Regional Hospital. 

Kick off the holiday season with warm hearts and twinkling trees—join us for this year’s Christmas Tree Festival!
