Festival of the Trees at Brickel 12/2/08

Festival of the Trees
Tuesday, December 2 from 6 to 9:30 p.m.

Each year FIU Department of Interior Design presents its annual Festival of the Trees, a local tradition now in its 22nd year. It marks the start of the holiday season by showcasing the creativity of South Florida’s premier design professionals who design holiday trees made from every imaginable material. Hundreds are expected for the opening, including some of Miami’s most well-known figures in the real estate, arts, architecture and design communities. Marvel at the originality of each tree while enjoying exceptional cuisine, cocktails and entertainment provided by exotically costumed performers and the FIU Jazz Ensemble. Guests will be able to vote for their favorite tree, and two winners will be chosen – the judge’s choice and people’s choice. Proceeds from the Festival of the Trees will be used to fund student scholarships and educational enhancements. Tickets are $50 if purchased in advance and $65.00 purchased at the door.
