Santa Paws Fest 2021
featuring the 6th annual
Adopt-a-Tree Festival 2021
Vinegar Hill Music Theatre, Arundel ME
The 6th annual Adopt-a-Tree Festival is here, a hybrid in-person and virtual event!
You will have the chance to view beautifully decorated trees and wreaths, and take a chance on "adopting" each one through purchase of raffle tickets. We will also have take-home activities, opportunities to shop for your pups and humans, and awareness activities to help you help out our rescue pups.
Where: Vinegar Hill Music Theatre, Arundel ME, and virtually! Everyone can participate!
When: Dec 4th and Dec 5th
Pick up of winning trees and wreaths begins Sunday afternoon, Dec 5th
Admission: Free to participate but you can buy raffle tickets or donate directly to the rescue.
How can I participate? Decorate an artificial Christmas tree or a real or artificial wreath of any size, style or fashion - traditional or non-traditional, using any type of materials. The tree and its decorations will be raffled off - if you are unable to pick up you can pay to have your winnings mailed. The virtual option allows anyone in the US to participate – so fun!
Suggestions for decorating your trees: While traditional Christmas decorations are always beautiful, you could also create your own masterpiece by creating a specific theme (ocean, tools, animals, memory tree, money tree with scratch tickets, items or gift certificates from your business, honoring a favorite author, animal, a different holiday, military etc.). The possibilities are limitless! We are in awe every year at the creativity and beauty - we will post some of the past trees on the event page and on social media posts.
Can I donate something else instead of a tree or wreath? Sponsorship of the festival, monetary donations and gift cards are great ways to participate in the festival and advertise your business. All gift cards will be used on Lucky Pup trees or another local tree in our community. Any in-kind or gift card donations will be advertised on our event pages. There are event sponsorship opportunities as well (attached). Social media sharing is encouraged and much appreciated!
