The Festival of Trees celebrates the joys of the holiday season and supports the care given by Cranberry Hospice. Come see many trees, uniquely decorated by talented individuals or groups from local communities. As you enter the Festival, you are greeted by a 15 foot giant, the Tree of Lights, whose candles glow in memory or in honor of loved ones. Stroll among the remaining trees while you enjoy the varied entertainment, make a wish with Santa or purchase a butterfly to benefit the Children’s Bereavement Program. Before you leave, make sure to stop in our delightful gift shop. Choose something as a memento of your day, reminding you that your contributions to the Festival of Trees go directly to patient care and the Children’s Bereavement program of Cranberry Hospice.
In the 21 year history of the Festival of Trees, the Friends of Cranberry Hospice have donated over $1,500,000 to Cranberry Hospice to provide hospice services to patients and families in the communities of Bourne, Bridgewater, Carver, Duxbury, Halifax, Hanover, Hanson, Kingston, Lakeville, Marshfield, Middleboro, Pembroke, Plymouth, Plympton, Sandwich, Scituate, and Wareham.
