What could be more beautiful than seeing Community Center full of festive Holiday Trees? Yountville Arts invites you to create a beautiful Holiday Tree and share your joy of the season with our community.


Wake up your imagination as you rummage through all those boxes of holiday decorations past, then pick your tree and let the magic begin……


In the weeks before Christmas, the Town tied with bows,

the bells, they’ll be ringing, and lights all aglow.

At the Community Center, we hope to appear in droves,

the symbol most loved, the CHRISTMAS TREE Grove!

Bring your tree of choice and make it your star,

you WIN the contest with folks near and far,

We’ll cheer you and praise you, you’ll be the Yule Star.

Bring your favorite decorations, and there decorate.

Bring the children, the grand folks, uncles and aunties.

We’ll sing carols and pass around candies!

It will be a jolly good time with goodies galore.

For the winner there’s a prize in store!

Business Sponsors can sign up to feature their tree

and add to the holiday Christmas tree glee.

We elves ask that you use the sun as your source

and only use solar lights of course.

We’ll look after the grove and water your trees,

so they’re healthy for you to take home when you please.

We need to know how many elves will appear very soon.

Thanks and excited to see your Christmas dreams bloom!


Your beautiful tree can be between 3- 4’ tall, live or artificial and must have its own sturdy base as well as securely attached beautiful decorations. Keep in mind trees will be located outside in the elements and exposed to busy fingers. Find full specifications, instructions and details at


Please confirm your entry by emailing by November 19. Trees must be delivered to Community Center Plaza, 6516 Washington Street on November 30 or December 1 between 9 AM – 5 PM. If there is a story or other information you’d like to share with the public, please email or bring it. We will print a card to place with your tree.  If you need to make alternative arrangements for delivery, please email or call (707) 948-2627.  


Our judges will be conferring on the contest winner that will be announced on December 15. Trees must be picked up between January 1 – 5. 


Join the holiday fun that will make our Community Center beautiful and festive for all to enjoy!
