BC Children's Hospital Foundation Festival of Trees | The Bay Centre | Thursday, 16. November 2017

Celebrate the magic of the 2017 Holiday Season and help raise funds and awareness for BC Children's Hospital Foundation through 26th annual Victoria Festival of Trees.

The Victoria Festival of Trees, held exclusively at The Bay Centre this year, has become a cherished holiday tradition and the unofficial kick-off to the holiday season in the city. Join us for the 26th anniversary event, vote for your favourite tree, and support kids from your community who need the support and care only BC Children's Hospital can provide.

There are over 80 trees to view on levels 2 and 3.


On average, two kids from Victoria are treated at BC Children's Hospital each day.

All funds raised through the 2017 Festival of Trees support the Excellence in Child Health Fund, which supports important programs and services provided by BC Children’s Hospital, its research institute and Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children. Your contribution supports the areas of greatest need in each of these facilities, including specialized research into childhood diseases, the purchase of and/or upgrading to state-of-the-art medical equipment, and education programs for caregivers and families.

Meet Rowan, the 2017 Festival of Trees Champion child. Rowan is one of an average 2,600 children from Vancouver Island who are treated at BC Children's Hospital each year.
