TIMONIUM, Md — After being virtual for the past two years, Kennedy Krieger Institute's beloved Festival of Trees fundraising event is back in person this weekend. It’s Kennedy Krieger's largest fundraising event to benefit their patients, students and programs.

The event will be held at the Timonium Fairgrounds November 25-27. Hundreds of designer-decorated trees, wreaths and gingerbread houses will be on sale and displayed throughout the fairgrounds’ cow palace, which will be transformed into a winter wonderland. WMAR-2 News put together a tree to celebrate our 75th anniversary.

They are offering timed entry tickets to minimize crowds. Although there are designated arrival times, you are invited to stay as long as you’d like. All ages are welcomed to the event however there are guidelines that everyone must follow.

Tickets for children ages 5-12 are $10 and tickets for adults ages 13-64 are $20. Those who are 65 and older will receive a $5 discount and only need to pay $15 for ticket entry. All kids 4 and under get in for free, however, you still will need to add their ticket to your order when buying.

Festival of Trees began in 1990 and has raised more than $24 million dollars. The money raised goes towards research, patient care and special education school programs.
