TLC's 37th Annual Christmas Tree Festival is coming up on December 1st and 2nd, 2018! Tickets are on sale now with an early bird pricing discount through October 31st. Tickets are be available online any time or by phone at (303)776-7417 or in person during TLC business hours. All tickets will be available for pick-up at will call on the day of the event, but if you prefer to pick up your tickets beforehand, they will be available at TLC starting November 1st. Ticket prices also increase to regular admission pricing on November 1st.

This year you may purchase additional raffle booklets (six tickets) anytime online with no transaction fee.

With news of the Plaza Event Center's pending closure, TLC has undergone a search for new local venues large enough to accommodate one of Longmont's most popular events, and we're excited to say that this year we'll be hosted by The St. Vrain for our evening event, and The Wild Game for our morning event.

Because of the costs associated with holding the event in two places and other line items, we've enacted a small price increase in tickets. Early bird tickets will be five dollars higher at $70 (through October 31st), and regular tickets will be $80 (starting November 1st)  this year. We hope you understand the need for these changes and plan to join us to win some decked-out trees at these beautiful local venues.


TLC’s 37th Annual Christmas Tree Festival is a two-day event. A ticket purchases entry into either the evening or the morning event (but you're welcome to buy tickets to both!). At each event we raffle beautiful, themed trees that are decorated with ornaments and items. Each tree and its accompanying items are valued at a minimum of $150. Some trees are actual trees decorated with everything from gift cards to iPads, and some are creative "trees" decorated in the spirit of the Festival.

At the evening festival guests will enjoy dinner, cash bar, wine pull, live entertainment, and vying to win one of the many trees up for raffle.

At the morning festival guests will enjoy a luncheon, cash bar, live entertainment, and vying to win one of the many, MANY trees up for raffle.

Each ticket is accompanied by 6 raffle tickets. Additional books of raffle tickets can be purchased for $5 before or during the event.
