FIU’s annual Festival of the Trees has become a South Florida tradition, marking the start of the holiday season for over a quarter of a century. Since its inception, the Festival of the Trees has united the region’s premier design professionals in this celebration of the holiday season’s shapes, colors, light and poetry. The event showcases the unique creativity of the community by engaging local, nation and international designers in the design of holiday trees made from every imaginable material.
For our 26th year, the Festival focused on positive change and making a difference through design. In keeping with the spirit of the Festival of the Trees, the point of departure for the design was representative of the holiday spirit, but does not have to be a tree. This year designers were awarded in the following categories:
PEOPLES CHOICE (ballots by guests)
The trees are also auctioned at the event, and became holiday decoration by the winning bidders
