About Christmas Tree Elegance

Spokane Symphony Associates hosts this yearly 13 day regional event, attracting more than 100,000 attendees from Washington, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, California, and Canada. The event features the raffle of themed and beautifully decorated trees located at the Historic Davenport Hotel and River Park Square.

The celebration is the largest of our annual fundraisers and 2019 marks our 37th year. This highly anticipated event is the culmination of 11 months of planning and efforts by our tireless volunteers. 2018 was our largest year ever having sold 430,500 raffle tickets!

Our continued success is largely due to the generous support of the donors to our trees and events.

How It Works

Individuals and businesses donate to create 18 amazing tree displays with values of up to $4,999 in decorations and prizes. These trees are then presented at River Park Square and the Historic Davenport Hotel during December each year. This event is free and open to the public.

Raffle tickets are sold at both locations during the event for $1 each. Then a public drawing ceremony is held at each venue at the end of the event to see who won that year’s trees.

There are also Holiday Luncheon Concerts at the Historic Davenport Hotel.
