Christmas Tree Festival


Join us in 2024 for CRHF 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 30th annual Christmas Tree Festival is back and merrier—and brighter—than ever!

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!
