Tree & Wreath Designers

The Junior League of the Great Lake Bay Region is preparing for its 2022 Festival of Trees to take place Friday, November 11 through Sunday, November 13, at the Great Hall Banquet & Convention Center, 5121 Bay City Road in Midland. The money raised during this annual fundraiser supports the Junior League of the Great Lakes Bay Region’s mission of promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community. 

A magical winter wonderland will be created with the donations of time, talent, and materials from local businesses, artisans, florists, and interior decorators. Since 1987 thousands of people have strolled through our holiday event, hoping they will be the lucky winners of a special tree, wreath, or garland. As a festival designer, your tree, wreath, or garland will be seen by many, and your name will appear on a placard next to your display. This is a chance to show off your talent and creativity, promote your business, and display your support of our community!
