2020 Festival of Trees
In light of the 2020 COVID 19 Pandemic, the Woodford County Festival of Trees committee has gotten creative. With the goal of continuing our tradition (to raise money for the children of Woodford County), we have structured this year's event in such a way to allow the community to safely participate over a greater window of time. With 15 total donated fully decorated trees, we are strategically placing trees throughout the community and providing a window of three weeks for the community to view them and purchase raffle tickets. You will find a map located on the MAP tab of each tree location. Trees will be up for community viewing beginning Saturday, November 14th. You can purchase a raffle ticket on the SHOP page for any of the trees to wish to enter to win. Tickets can also be purchased by calling 859-214-4593. We will pull tickets for winners via Facebook live on Sunday, December 6th. We're excited about this year's event and hope that you enjoy it!
The Woodford County Festival of Trees Mission is to support youth in the local community by raising funds that will then be distributed equally to two local charities/ministries.
The first beneficiary of funds is Young Life local area KY61 of Woodford County.
The second group is Shop With A Cop operated by local law enforcement personnel.
Our specific purpose is :
- to provide funds that allow Shop With A Cop to take under privileged youth from the local community shopping for clothing and toys during the Christmas season;
- to provide funds for Young Life Woodford County area KY61 that allow them to take youth toYoung Life summer camps as well as for general funds that allow them to operate the on-going ministry;
- to create public awareness of the two designated charities in order for the public to have a greater sense of how they serve youth in the community

The 2020 Woodford County Festival of Trees has been adjusted in style to accommodate for the current world pandemic. As a result, there will not be a one day event. Rather, trees will be on display throughout the community for folks to view and purchase raffle tickets for. Tickets can be purchased on our website or over the phone.
Setting up in this style is multipurpose. There are many businesses in our community who are still counting on your foot traffic to keep their doors open. Each tree host is one of those businesses. We encourage you to check out the map and visit each one of our trees on display!
