FORT MYERS Fla – Southwest Florida Goodwill Foundation's signature event, The Festival of Trees opened on Friday at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center on 2301 First Street in Fort Myers.

The Festival is a week-long celebration which includes entertainment, children’s activities and more. The festival will feature an art walk where visitors can view 25 holiday trees.  

Last year, more than 4,000 people came out to see the holiday display.

The Festival wraps up on December 4 with the “Tux & Trees Gala,” a live auction where guests can bid on each of the trees.

In the past three years, the festival and gala have raised more than $150,000 to support Goodwill's programs and services.
