Festival of Trees Rocking Around the Christmas Tree coming December 3rd!

Join us for a night of Christmas joy and support the Kenora and Lake of the Woods Community Foundation

 4 Locations hosting this wonderful event for our community including The Plaza, 901 Westside, Log Cabin and Lake of the Woods Brewing Company on Saturday, December 3rd from 6:30 to 10:00 pm 

 On behalf of the Board of Directors we would like to invite you to join us for a night to celebrate our communities. We can always count on our community coming together to share some holiday joy. 

This year Rocking Around the Christmas Tree will include delectable three course dinner at your choice of one of four of Kenora’s favourite restaurants: Lake of the Woods Brewing Company, 901 Westside, Log Cabin Tavern or the Plaza. The evening will include live festivities and of course the traditional and always exciting live tree auction broadcast to each restaurant. 

Restaurants will be opening up at 6:30pm, feel free to mix and mingle at your designated restaurant. Dinner will be served around 7:30pm followed by the live tree auctions. Jake on the Lake will be our emcee for the evening, guiding you through this wonderful night supporting the Kenora and Lake of the Woods Community Foundation.

Thank you to our 4 amazing community driven restaurants in the Kenora area who graciously accepted to host our guests with their hospitality this year.

Due to its popularity since 2020, we will once again have the “tree trail” winding its way through our downtown and across the city so all can enjoy the beautiful trees lovingly created by our dedicated and creative Decorations Teams before they are auctioned off the night of the Festival of Trees. The tree trail will be introduced in mid November.
