Images, stories and experiences have the power to change the world. 

And we’re using that power to inspire people to take action to protect the trees in our environment.

One image, one story, and one event at a time.  

Trees hold deep cultural, environmental, functional and emotional significance. They are also essential to our physical and mental wellbeing. Trees in Ottawa, and elsewhere, are under threat: from invasive species, deforestation, urban intensification and other hazards.   

By curating events and exhibits in our community to bring people together to learn about trees, we hope to build greater awareness and appreciation for trees and our urban forest.  

Tree Fest Ottawa's activities are made possible by the dedication of many people who are passionate about trees.  


This year, the Tree Fest Ottawa's fall tree festival will be held on September 22nd and 23rd in Brewer Park at Brewer Pond.

Food, art, guided walks, music, workshops and much more. 

The fall festival is planned and coordinated by Tree Fest Ottawa's dedicated volunteers. The City of Ottawa generously covers the direct costs for equipment and materials. We are looking for festival sponsors, such as local businesses, city councillors or organizations, to cover the honoraria for musicians, artists and workshop leaders. For more information, click button below.
