A North Country Festival of Trees is a joint event held by the Watertown Family YMCA and the Samaritan Medical Center Foundation.

The Watertown Family YMCA has been a part of the Watertown community since 1855. Over 5,000 children are served each year throughout Jefferson County.

The Samaritan Medical Center Foundation was established in 1996 to encourage gifts that support and advance healthcare provided by Samaritan Medical Center and to increase the public’s awareness of and participation in health and wellness programs.

Funds raised by the Festival of Trees will be used to establish and maintain quality healthcare services and programs at Samaritan Medical Center.
