Tickets for the Embassy’s 37th Annual Festival of Trees on Sale Today

Fort Wayne, Ind. (November 1 , 2021) – The Festival of Trees is one of the region’s most anticipated holiday traditions, and the Embassy Theatre is excited to announce that tickets are on sale today for the beloved community event. This year marks the 37th year of this longstanding festival, taking place from Wednesday, November 24 through Wednesday, December 1.

Founded in 1984, the Festival of Trees supports ongoing operational and restoration efforts for the Embassy Theatre Foundation. The Festival is the organization’s largest annual fundraising event.

Lobbies of the Embassy Theatre and Indiana Hotel will transform into a wonderland of decorated trees under the theme of The Magic of the Season. Patrons will tour the spectacular venue to view 70 decorated trees. Admission includes visits with Santa (various dates and time) and festive entertainment on stage including the Grande Page pipe organ as well as youth choir and dance group performances. Attendees are encouraged to register to win show tickets and other goodies as well as vote for their favorite trees! Also noteworthy are the animated holiday windows along the building on Harrison Street.

The organization will again offer a virtual ticketing option to share with friends, coworkers and family who cannot attend in person or to provide the perfect holiday backdrop to play on televisions at holiday celebrations. That ticket will be available for purchase on December 1.
Breakfast with Santa is a popular featured event and will take place Friday through Sunday of the Festival. A news release later this week will include details.
