For decades, winter enthusiasts of all ages flocked to St. Joseph’s Church in Lucinda for the highly-anticipated Clarion County Festival of Trees, a magical event where beautifully decorated Christmas trees turned the forest landscape into a winter wonderland. 

This year, the festival lives on in a new home, the Cook Forest Sawmill Center for the Arts in Cook Forest. On December 1st and 2nd (Friday and Saturday) the Sawmill Center will play host to vendors, crafters, local entertainers, and of course hundreds of guests there to take part in this captivating display of Christmas trees and holiday themed fun. 

Doors will open at 10 am each morning and won’t close until 7 pm on Friday and 4 pm on Saturday.  

This is a perfect time to kick off your Christmas shopping, plus live, decorated trees will be available for sale. All this is set against the beautiful winter backdrop of the area’s oldest and largest pine trees in Cook Forest State Park. Christmas music from local schools and churches will add to the celebration.  

Admission will be $1 per person, and food will be available. For more information, please call the Sawmill Center for the Arts at (814) 927-6655.
