Falls Church Tree Fest Set for Mid-December at Hilton Garden Inn

The Falls Church Tree Fest, a holiday event featuring decorated trees displayed at the Falls Church Hilton Garden Inn, will be held from Dec. 12 – 14.

The purpose of the event is to aid non-profit groups who provide benefits and services to the Falls Church City community. To participate in the event, non-profit groups or businesses that wish to support for a non-profit can decorate trees for display at the Hilton Garden Inn, which is located at 706 W. Broad Street.

This year, the Falls Church Education Foundation will be one of the non-profit groups participating in the three-day event. At the end of the festival, after the general public has had an opportunity to view all of the trees, each tree is auctioned off, with 100 percent of the winning going to the organization that decorated the tree.

In addition, all organizations can display materials at the event to raise awareness within the Falls Church City community. Non-profit organizations or businesses who wish to show support for a non-profit by participating in the Falls Church Tree Fest can go to for more information or contact Melissa Morse at 703-992-9435 or

There are still plenty of tree spaces available and all participants will be recognized in the press and on the Falls Church Tree Fest website.
