Christmas Tree Festival

The beautiful and historic Caldwell Consistory has played host to many events over the past 100-plus years and will continue to do so, especially with its restoration and newly added amenities. Weddings and receptions are elegantly staged, as well as the Press Enterprise’s Bridal Showcase.

Perfect for receptions, parties or proms, the large dining hall accommodates up to 300 guests and we have two smaller dining rooms for more intimate events.

Our theater seats 600 people and is a premier location for plays and concerts. The Consistory’s theater has 60 hand-painted backdrops that were painted by a German-born artist more than 100 years ago. The acoustics and lighting also are phenomenal for live arts.

The Caldwell Consistory also entertains annual events such as the Christmas Tree Fest, which begins with the area Christmas tree growers who donate more than 100 live trees to be trimmed. Then, hundreds of people – from community volunteers and youth groups, to florists and garden clubs set up and decorate the rooms and trees, which are each sponsored by an area business or individual.

Throughout the event, local entertainment is provided, from school choirs to dance groups and folk musicians performing in front of a seasonal mural.

At the conclusion of activities, the trees are donated to area families in need, as identified by local social service agencies.
