Welcome to the 17th Annual Festival of Trees and Wreaths!
We are celebrating our 17th Annual Festival of Trees and Wreaths conscious of the pandemic situations throughout our region. In order to keep our participants and communities safe, you can experience the magic of the Festival from the safety of your own home. Here you can view all the trees and wreaths in both communities, take a virtual tour with some local friends, bid on wreaths or tree decorations and gifts, participate in our raffle and vote for your favorite trees and wreaths.
Your participation and support will help Community Connections continue to create opportunities for children and adults with Intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities to lead healthy and fulfilling lives in our communities of Southwest Colorado. Physical distancing has made it even more difficult for many of our neighbors with disabilities to fully engage and enjoy a sense of belonging in our communities. Your donations and bids help Community Connections provide support and connections during these difficult times.
We hope you'll take a few minutes to view our introductory video, which includes stories from people impacted by Community Connections, an explanation of our programs, and guidance on how to participate in the event this year.
