FORT WAYNE, Ind. (ADAMS) – The Festival of Trees is one of the region’s most anticipated holiday traditions, and the Embassy Theater has officially announced that it will host the 38th annual Festival of Trees from Wednesday, November 23 through Wednesday, November 30. .
This year, Ambassador Enterprises joined us as the title sponsor of the event.
The annual Festival traditions continue into 2022. The lobbies of the Embassy Theater and Indiana Hotel will transform into a wonderland of decorated trees of varying sizes, shapes and a wide range of themes.
The Embassy released the following:
Admission includes visits with Santa Claus (various dates and times) and festive entertainment on stage including the Big Page pipe organ as well as choir and youth dance performances.
Breakfast with Santa is a popular featured event and will take place on the Friday and Saturday of the Festival. The cost of breakfast will be $30 per person (reservation required, very limited places). Breakfast with Santa is sponsored by Steel Dynamics. Tickets go on sale for the Festival of Trees and Breakfast with Santa on Monday, October 17 at 10 a.m.
