Festival of Trees

December 1, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Please join us Saturday, December 1, 2018 for the 31st annual Festival of Trees for a night filled with wine and premium Mother’s beer, a seated dinner, being filled with the true holiday spirit, and dazzling performances from the internationally acclaimed acapella group Missouri State Beartones and McKinney Music’s classical holiday duets on flute and violin.

We will reminisce on 20 years and the transformative effect that the Discovery Center has had on Downtown Springfield, our local and global economy of STEM professionals, and our role in ending generational poverty starting at the headwaters of a child’s educational journey.

This year’s event will raise funding to ensure that the Discovery Center continues providing your Springfield Chamber of Commerce’s #secondpaycheck into the next 20 years and beyond.
