Welcome to Festival of Trees, where holiday magic comes to life each year in downtown Davenport!


For 11 days in November, the 30,000 square foot River Center complex is completely transformed into a winter wonderland featuring over 150 designer displays and fun-filled attractions for all ages. Thanks to a caring community of over 3,000 volunteers, sponsors and friends of Festival, all funds raised at this event go to support local arts education programs in area schools and beyond.

This treasured holiday tradition also consists of several ticketed special events throughout the 11-day spectacle PLUS a free televised holiday parade featuring giant helium character balloons, floats, marching bands and of course a visit from Santa to kick off the holiday season!


Recognized as one of the top events of its kind in North America, over 100,000 people are touched by Festival of Trees each year with millions raised in support of local arts programs since its inception in 1986.
