Yuletree Jubilee Festival benefits local after school art programs

Hampden County

Sunday is the last day, of the 4th Annual Yuletree Jubilee Festival in West Springfield.

Every year, local businesses and individuals decorate and donate 40 trees for the festival, which takes place at Balise Toyota.

Four local authors and an illustrator visited the festival Saturday, for a book signing and meet and greet. 

“Our mission is to always collaborate community, culture and commerce,” said Christine Costanzi, chairperson of the Red Thread Network for the Arts in West Springfield. “We like to interact and introduce authors and literature and poets and artists to the community so people know who lives right next door to them.” 

All of the money raised at the event will benefit after-school art programs in West Springfield, and adult art shows in the community.

A tree is also raffled off to one lucky winner, each day of the festival.
