Wellington Christmas Tree Festival 2017

This year’s Christmas Tree Festival at Wellington International Airport will see the return of popular trees decorated by Kiwi sports teams and local businesses, as well as some welcome additions.

More than 25 trees decorated by local businesses including Whitakers, Weta Workshop, Chamber Music New Zealand, Wellington Phoenix, NZ Rugby, the Hurricanes and David Jones will be lighting up the Airport between 28 November and 6 January 2018 as part of Cystic Fibrosis Wellington’s Annual Christmas Festival, which raises funds to support Kiwis living with CF in Wellington, Kapiti Coast and Wairarapa.

The trees are sponsored by businesses and help bring a touch of Christmas spirit to the airport and to bring a better and brighter future for people living with CF.

Hell Pizza won best tree in 2016

Last year’s best tree was won by the spooky Hell Pizza tree (right) and there are sure to be some amazing trees on display this year so if you are travelling through Wellington at Christmas take time to check out the amazing trees for yourself. You won’t be able to miss a huge billboard at the airport which raises awareness about cystic fibrosis, highlighting that it’s the most common life-threatening genetic condition in New Zealand.

Last year’s Festival raised a total of $35,000, allowing Cystic Fibrosis Wellington Branch to continue its vital fieldworker service to ensue families and new parents get the support they need.
