Festival of Trees is the Embassy’s signature fundraising event and dollars raised benefit the nonprofit’s operations and programming. Founded in 1984, the Festival of Trees is a fundraising and community goodwill event. Revenue supports ongoing operational and restoration efforts for the Embassy Theatre Foundation, Inc.

Embassy Festival of Trees offers organizations a unique opportunity to participate in an annual community event and the Embassy Theatre Foundation’s largest fundraiser:

Youth Performance Education Opportunity — Youth entertainment on the Embassy stage is the highlight of the festival, with regional dance groups filling 20+ performance slots on the stage during the weekend festival hours. The youth performances provide an entertainment backdrop for the festival and young dancers receive an opportunity to experience performing on the Embassy’s Broadway-scaled stage.

Community Visibility — The Festival of Trees attracts more than 18,000 visitors annually to the Embassy Theatre. Beginning with the Night of Lights, the Embassy is a featured stop in the city’s annual downtown lighting ceremony, offering the opening of the Harrison Street holiday windows and the opening night for Festival of Trees.

Community Collaboration — This event opens the doors to Fort Wayne and surrounding communities and gives the public the opportunity to participate as patrons, musical performers, event volunteers, sponsors and/or tree decorators. The Festival of Trees is proud to partner with other downtown holiday festivals to make downtown the finest holiday destination in northeast Indiana.

Economic Development — In keeping with its mission to “preserve and operate one of Indiana’s largest historic theatres,” the Embassy manages ongoing restoration and maintenance efforts, all with the primary goal of improving and securing the theater for future generations. These efforts are accomplished by offering diverse programming and events and welcoming more than 110,000 patrons and performers each year.
