Messiah Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall

Wander through the Winter Wonderland Forest of fully decorated Christmas Trees and Wreaths at the Messiah Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall.

Forest Hours:
Friday, December 4th from 4-8 p.m.
Saturday, December 5th from 12-8 p.m.
Sunday, December 6th from 12-8 p.m.

Extra safety precautions will be taken to keep the festival healthy! This will be a beautiful, peaceful and socially distanced setting.

Cast your vote for your favorites! Prizes will be awarded for People’s Choice in small tree, large tree and wreath category. (Not all decorated trees will be available to win.)

2020 has been the year of the “Hometown Heroes”. Those healthcare workers, teachers, daycare providers, grandparents, friends, delivery personnel, pastors, firefighters, police officers, florists, spouses, the list goes on…..those folks that rose up and met the community needs deserve to be recognized with a unique tree!

This is a free community event open to the public! All wreaths and donated trees will be ticket auctioned on Sunday night at Festival close. Any proceeds will benefit Messiah Lutheran Preschool and “In Christ’s Care” latchkey programs.

Contact Janet at (618) 531-3328 for more info or to claim a spot for your decorated tree or wreath.

A note from the Festival Host:

We lengthened the Festival hours to enable folks to come through no more than 20 in the building at a time. We ask that you wear a mask as you soak in all the beauty and creativity the season has to offer.
We will still be ticket raffling some trees and all the wreaths, but NEW this year, we will hold an online auction for one decorated tree, wreath and centerpiece!! Stay tuned on info for that and how to watch a live viewing of all the trees at the end of the Festival!!
