NOV. 12 UPDATE: In light of Gov. Sisolak’s recent press conference and his request for a “Stay at Home 2.),” the Down syndrome Organization of Southern Nevada and Collaboration Center Foundation have decided to postpone the in-person components of this year's Festival of Trees and Lights™.

They have tentatively rescheduled the family viewing nights for Dec. 4-6, with the celebration reception tentatively scheduled for Dec. 10 at the LV Ranch (8390 W. Windmill Lane). These new dates are dependent upon all ongoing COVID-19 Nevada regulations and are subject to change.

This postponement doesn't mean the Las Vegas community can't get into the holiday spirit, though. The Festival of Trees and Lights online auction and preview will launch virtually on Nov. 14 giving the public the opportunity to view and start bids on the exquisite trees, wreaths and gifts showcased at the annual event. Guests who wish to visit the trees in person can get into the holiday spirit beginning Dec. 4. To participate in the online auction, visit FOTL.givesmart.com

Every year, the Down Syndrome Organization of Southern Nevada (DSOSN) hosts their annual fundraising gala, the Festival of Trees and Lights.

This year, they have partnered with the Collaboration Center Foundation to jointly host the 32nd Annual Festival of Trees and Lights at the LV Ranch (formerly the WHY Ranch) on Nov. 19.

This year's collaborated event will have a collection of brilliantly decorated trees, wreaths, menorahs, and baskets decorating the LV Ranch starting Nov. 13.

Proceeds raised from our online auction, socially distanced family viewing nights, and cocktail reception will benefit both organizations equally, allowing each of us to continue servicing individuals and families with intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities.
