What began in 1985 with $1000 in seed money – but in its first year raised $11,000 thanks to the support of the community – grew to become the largest holiday fundraiser between Provo, UT and Las Vegas, NV. In its 30 year history, the Jubilee of Trees has raised millions in support of programs and services at the 245-bed Dixie Regional Medical Center through the sale of exquisitely decorated Christmas trees, wreaths, gingerbread houses, baked goods and handmade items. The Jubilee – this year held from Wednesday, November 18 through Monday, November 23 – includes a live concert, a Teddy Bear picnic for the kids, a fashion show, a gala dinner and auction, breathtakingly beautiful holiday decor created by amazingly talented craftsmen (and women) and ongoing entertainment throughout the event.
The Jubilee of Trees opens with the Bar J Wrangler’s Bells and Boots concert at 7 p.m. Wednesday. Official tree viewing takes place Thursday through Monday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, except Friday when the doors close to the public at 4 p.m. in preparation for the gala dinner and auction. Tickets for the Jubilee of Trees are $5 for adults, $1 for children 15 and younger. Individual concert and special event prices vary. Visit DixieRegional.org/JubileeofTrees for more information.
