The Southeastern Health Foundation will host the 36th annual Southeastern Hospice Festival of Trees from December 3 to 6. This year’s Festival has relocated to the former JCPenney Building in Biggs Park Mall in Lumberton to allow for social distancing and additional vendor space.
This year’s theme is “Hope, Love, & Peace,” and the Festival will have a wide variety of vendors where visitors can shop for wide variety of holiday decorations, gifts and baked goods.
“We are excited to partner with Biggs Park Mall to offer a larger facility for our event, which has allowed us to add vendors and bring back homemade baked goods,” said Southeastern Health Foundation Executive Director Sissy Grantham. “The larger space will also allow us to social distance and keep everyone safe. We will follow all recommended guidelines so that our visitors can feel safe and kick off the holiday season with some shopping while viewing the beautifully decorated trees.”
This year’s festival hours are Friday, Dec. 3 from 7-9 p.m.; Saturday, Dec. 4 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Sunday, Dec. 5 from 1 to 5 p.m.; and Monday, Dec. 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The annual event is Southeastern Hospice’s only fundraiser. Highlights include the Holiday Tree Display and Tinsel Town Market with local vendors, delicious homemade baked goods, Grandma’s Coffee Cakes and Southern Supreme Fruitcakes. The year’s Festival will feature a variety of vendors selling items from beautiful holiday décor, wreaths, jewelry, Scentsy, Mary Kay, and more. We are still looking for vendors, sponsors, volunteers, and donations of homemade baked goods.
Admission to the event is $3 for adults and $2 for children, with children age 3 and under admitted for free. The former JC Penney Building is located inside of Biggs Park Mall at 2800 N. Elm Street, Lumberton.
“Let your holiday shopping begin!” added Grantham. “It will certainly be an event that will bring hope, love, and peace to your holiday season. We hope you will join us and support Robeson County’s only not-for-profit hospice agency.”
