We invite you to participate in the inaugural Whittlesea Community Christmas Tree Spectacular.

We know it’s only April, but we’re getting the word out early to invite you to participate in this great community initiative and give you time to get creative.

This year and each December moving forward the Whittlesea Agricultural Society will be hosting the Whittlesea Community Christmas Tree Spectacular in the Whittlesea Agricultural Society administration building. We can fit a lot of artificial Christmas Trees in there!

Organisations, shops, trades, community groups, schools, individuals, and any other interested parties are invited to enter a decorated Christmas tree (we can supply the tree if required). Your tree may be decorated in a theme depending on your organisation or just made to look pretty. For example, a mechanic may decorate their tree with business cards and tools, a doctor might decorate their tree with ID bands, the florist may decorate with flowers and so on. You can get creative and enter anything you choose that is in the shape of a tree. The overall effect will be a Christmas wonderland right here in Whittlesea for everyone to enjoy.

The entry fee of $10 per decorated Christmas tree will be combined and donated to a local community group or cause as voted by the public. There will be a gold coin donation on entry to the display. The public will be asked to vote on their favourite tree after viewing the display; one entry per person.

The Christmas Tree Spectacular will be open from Friday 10th December and will close on approx. the 23rd. The display will be open daily from 12 midday until 9pm and we will offer sensory sessions (low light and music). Trees and or decorations can be collected from 17th to the 21st January 2022 or later.

Actual Christmas tree entries can be dropped off at the Whittlesea Agricultural Society Administration building (Gate 1, McPhees Rd, Whittlesea) by 1st December 2021. If you are decorating one of our trees you will be invited to decorate the tree once it is in place, approx. 25th November – 1st December. You can also supply the decorations and or tree and we can set up and decorate for you.

This initial letter is to invite you to submit your expression of interest to enter this fun competition and if you would like to participate, please email, phone, or message us your entry form and we will be in touch with further information. If easier, you can give us a quick call to confirm your interest and we can fill in the paperwork for you.

We are excited to be hosting this community initiative and we look forward to having you enter the Whittlesea Community Christmas Tree Spectacular. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us on 03 9716 2835 or email info@whittleseashow.org.au
