What is the Holiday Feztival of Trees? The event has two purposes. First to provide a family friendly event for all the people in our community. Just like the Shrine Circus that Shriners have been known for over 100 years, the Holiday Feztival is to bring the holiday spirit to the community. Secondly, it’s a fund raiser for Zuhrah Shriners operational needs just like the Shrine Circus.

How old is the Event? For Zuhrah Shriners this is the third year of the event. We are already known for creating beautiful and unique trees, wreaths and other holiday decor.

Where is the Event? Main Feztival of Trees event is located at the Zuhrah Shrine Center, 6120 Blue Circle Drive, Minnetonka, Minnesota. This is in the Opus Complex off of US 169 and Minnesota 62 (crosstown). Yes, the area is a one way complex but most know of Comcast and American Family Insurance as our neighbors.

What’s new for 2019? We have partnered with the Minneapolis Holiday Boutique which happens from November 8-10, 2019 at US Bank Stadium. There we will be bringing several of our creations to their festival of trees area which is on the 50 yard line down on the field.

Is there a cost for the events? There is no cost to attend our event at the Zuhrah Shrine Center. There is a cost to attend the Minneapolis Holiday Boutique. Available on their website by following the link on the home page.

What makes the event family fun? Everyone enjoys Christmas and the holiday season. We try to have such a variety of decorated trees that appeal to adults and children. We provide some shopping for the adults and activities for the children including St. Nick.

Can you take home a tree, wreath, or holiday decor ? Absolutely. Our intent is to share with our neighbors. We offer the purchase of tickets which allows everyone 18 years and older to have their name drawn on the last evening of our event. We will call you and congratulate you on your win and assist you with bringing your treasure home. Tickets can be purchased at both events at US Bank Stadium and Zuhrah Shrine Center. There are also other items up for silent auction and raffle at our event at the Zuhrah Shrine Center. One of which is a trip for two to Mexico.

What also is available at the Zuhrah Shrine event? The event center has full service beverages and food for additional purchase.

When you win a tree, what do you get? Everything that is on or underneath the tree is yours. The trees are high quality, pre-lit trees that are easy to transport. Should there be any part you don’t wish to keep we’ll gladly accept your donation.

    Are you looking for / do you have interest in additional vendors for the Holiday Feztival of Trees?

    Cookie Exchange Co. sells baking kits for traditional holiday cookies under the MN cottage food exemption. Pictures of some of our cookies (baked) are attached, as well as a picture of a sample kit. I’d love to discuss this with you further if you have any interest/availability!
