Christmas in the Forest is an opportunity for local families and fans of holiday cheer to be immersed in a woodland wonderland with themes from Pretty in Pink, to New York New York. Nostalgic, glitzy and sometimes wacky, festive trees will be accompanied
by a visit from Santa and a curation of holiday performances and activities.
The longstanding Christmas in the Forest is an annual fundraiser for the Providence Southwest Washington Foundation. A majority of the funds raised from Christmas in the Forest benefits a variety of foundation and hospital programs in addition to charity
care that the hospital provides.
The elaborate trees, wreaths and vignettes that comprise the Christmas in the Forest are sponsored by local companies. In turn, a team of designers are matched up to decorate each tree and wreath to a certain theme.
