Rochester Main Street is pleased to announce that Festival of Trees will return to Studley’s Flower Gardens on Friday, December 2nd from 6:30pm-8:30pm and Saturday, December 3rd from 2:00pm to 6:00pm.
Enjoy music, refreshments, and a visit from Santa while strolling through dozens of wonderfully decorated trees, generously donated by area businesses and organizations. They are fully decorated and often stuffed with gift certificates and other fun prizes.
According to Main Street Board member Jeff Bisson, the event is the nonprofit’s most successful fundraiser of the year. In 2021, the organization raised more than 7k for its initiatives, which include downtown beautification projects.
Over the course of the past year, Main Street utilized those funds to install a ‘Welcome to Downtown’ sign in Central Square, add several bistro tables to the Cocheco Riverwalk, install 4 public art murals depicting Rochester’s history on the side of the Fire Station, plant new flowers and bulbs in the park around the Parson Main monument, and the popular Bigfoot scavenger hunt.
“We look forward to welcoming the public to our 6th annual Festival of Trees,” said Bisson. “Special thanks to all the tree sponsors, volunteers, and Studley’s for generously hosting the event again.”
Admission is just $5 and includes 5 raffle tickets. Children under 12 enter at no cost. Studley’s Flower Gardens is located at 82 Wakefield Street, Rochester, NH 03867.
Rochester Main Street is an all-volunteer 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to downtown revitalization. Visit www.rochestermainstreet.org for more information.
