About Us                                                                 Our 2012 FCTF video

For the past 33 years, the Fairfield Christmas Tree Festival has raised funds for area non-profit organizations and their extremely worthwhile and effective causes.

Each year, the Festival Board performs an in-depth research of applicants and does on-site visits to choose a beneficiary for the following year's festival and quilt raffle proceeds. The Board is then privileged to work closely with these chosen organizations and our dedicated volunteers to plan and implement the next year's festival events.

Since 1981, the Fairfield Christmas Tree Festival has proudly raised millions of dollars for many well deserved charitable organizations. As we continue to grow, the Fairfield Christmas Tree Festival Board not only looks forward to each year's festival and the new friends that we make along the way, but we cherish the opportunity to learn about and assist the many wonderful organizations in our community for years to come.
