Saskatoon, September 26, 2017–Have your mouse ready to click at 10:00 am on October 2nd if you want tickets to a Festival of Trees special event. Last year two of the events sold out in under 10 minutes.
Brunch With Santa, and the Peter Pan Pajama Party sell out the quickest. This year the Festival added a second night for the Peter Pan Pajama Party.
“There was a huge demand last year requesting to have the Peter Pan Pajama Party on more than one night. We heard you!” said Festival of Trees CEO, Cheyenne Steffen.
There are several changes to the special events line-up this year. Gone are Preview Evening, Mother/Son Gala and the Rory Allen Tribute to Elvis show.
“We had to retire some events due mainly to lack of sponsorship funds,” said Steffen. “We know people might be disappointed but funding really drives everything we do at the Festival.”
Special events at the Festival of Trees this year are:
Mardi Gras Gala: Saturday, Nov. 25/New Format!
Brunch With Santa: Sunday, Nov. 26
Father/Daughter Gala: Monday, Nov. 27 & Tuesday, Nov. 28
Peter Pan Pajama Party: Wednesday, Nov. 29 and Thursday, Nov. 30
Perfectly Princess Tea Party: Saturday, Dec. 2
Tickets to special events include admission to the Festival of Trees, which runs November 24 – December 2 at the Western Development Museum.
Funds raised will support the MS Clinic at Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation.
