The TLC Christmas Tree Festival is a Chrysalis...
...Stay with me here. If you have been with us a few years, you are probably aware that your fearless e-news writer likes a few things: metaphors, lepidopterology, Pixar, and David Bowie. How are these connected? I'm so glad you asked.
This year we received the sad news that the Plaza Convention Center has been sold and will no longer host events. We've had a wonderful relationship with the Plaza for many years, and were both disappointed and worried to hear of its pending closure. What would become of the TLC Christmas Tree Festival? Who could host an event with 600 people in one room at the same time? After much measuring, I realized my living room is out.
Enter the players: our new Event Coordinator Kara Broderick, our wonderful volunteers on the Event Committee, and the local Longmont business community. Thanks to them, we are no longer a worried caterpillar, but instead are proud to announce we'll be transitioning the evening event to The St. Vrain and the morning event to The Wild Game.
Beautiful, enchanting setting for the December 1st evening dinner? Check!
Fun, fabulous, and plenty-big party room for the December 2nd luncheon? Double check!
We are thrilled to partner with these local venues and hope you'll plan to join us as we embrace these changes and work together to bring you the best Christmas Tree Festival yet.
In short, the Christmas Tree Festival will continue on as a beautiful butterfly. Tickets go on sale September 1st with early bird pricing. Check your inboxes for the link or visit our website, or call us, or stop by during business hours to buy your tickets. Mark your calendar and we'll see you there!
