We’re excited to announce that the 11th Annual Downtown PoCo Christmas Festival is back and better than ever!
Registration is now closed for the 11th Annual Christmas Tree Festival!
With proceeds going to PoCo Heritage, the Downtown PoCo BIA invites you to bring your artificial trees to be set up and decorated in one of the following City locations: Port Coquitlam City Hall, Michael Wright Art Gallery, Terry Fox Library, Port Coquitlam Community Centre, Hyde Creek Recreation Centre, or in the PoCo Heritage Museum. Alternatively, you can keep your tree on location at your Port Coquitlam business and become a scavenger hunt location. The price to enter will be $125 for businesses. Non-profit community groups may enter at no cost.
Everyone is welcome to enter a tree, whether as an individual or an organization. You may enter more than one tree. As in previous years, this is a contest! The decorators of the trees with the most votes at the end of the festival will win a prize. There will also be prizing for the scavenger hunt participants.
