The 28th annual Union Hospital Auxiliary Warther’s Christmas Tree Festival is ready to move forward as usual and kick off the holiday season.

The display of decorated Christmas trees and other holiday items is scheduled Nov. 13-21 at The Ernest Warther Museum and Gardens in Dover.

“We are very excited to once again be able to present the Warther’s Christmas Tree Festival to our community and to raise funds to support Cleveland Clinic Union Hospital,” auxiliary President Angie Thomas said. “The Christmas Tree Festival has helped usher in the holiday season in the Tuscarawas Valley for so many years, and we believe it is important to keep that tradition alive.”

Daily hours for the festival are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., except on the festival’s final day of Nov. 21 when it closes at 5 p.m. The admission price is $5 for adults while children younger than 12 are admitted for free.

The Christmas trees in the festival are all for sale, along with wreaths, holiday arrangements and other items on display inside Warther’s Museum during the festival.

The festival’s Preview Party is scheduled Friday, Nov. 12 at Warther’s Museum at 6 p.m. Tickets are limited and are on sale by visiting Pam’s Posies on the Boulevard in Dover or online at The Preview Party again will include the auction of specially designed items for this event.

Proceeds from the Christmas Tree Festival are donated by the auxiliary to Cleveland Clinic Union Hospital for the purchase of patient care equipment and facility improvements. All proceeds from the festival and all auxiliary projects and fundraising programs stay at Union Hospital.
