Designing for Festival

Festival of Trees would not be possible without our dedicated and talented designers.

 

Every year, over 30,000 people attend Festival to see the beautifully designed original decor. Our designers provide inspiration and pleasure to people of all ages as they begin their holiday season.

All designs (except Budding Designers) are donations that will be sold at Festival of Trees to raise funds for Quad City Arts. 

Designer registration fees are non-refundable.

Why Become a Designer?

Designing for Festival has many benefits! 

Every design stays on display for 10 days and is viewed by over 30,000 attendees.

 

Depending on which area you participate in, you will be awarded:

  • Complimentary General Admission tickets

  • Complimentary Grand Premiere (opening event) tickets

  • A chance to win a designer ribbon
