Festival of Trees

Dubuque Bed Breakfasts | Iowa Bed Breakfasts The Mercy Festival of Trees is in full swing at the Hotel Julien. This is the 26th year that this beautiful community event has been held in Dubuque. From Friday, November 20th to Saturday, November 28th you can view the sparkling trees for no charge. There are many events held during this time to raise money to support the building of a new Intensive Care Unit at Mercy Hospital. Besides the silent auction, they are holding a Festival of Trees Cookie Walk on the 21st. This is a real favorite around here. For $10 you get to fill a bucket of some of the most delicious cookies around. I like to freeze the cookies and then have them for Christmas treats for my family. On Tuesday, November 24th the Tri-State Surgery Center and US Bank are hosting a wine tasting, cake auction and jewelry show at the festival. You get to taste the wines and also purchase bottles of wine at the event. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. There is a viewing of the cakes from 5:30-6:15. This is a very popular event.

So come on up to our neck of the woods and stay at QWL while you visit the Festival of Trees in downtown Dubuque. It is a great way to get into the holiday spirit and help support the building of the Intensive Care Unit at Mercy!
