Philly Goat Project Christmas Tree Cycles

January 6 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Philly Goat Project’s annual Christmas Tree-Cycle is returning for a sixth year bigger and better than ever before with three festivals instead of the normal two. The first two Christmas Tree-Cycle festivals will take place at The Farm at Awbury Arboretum on Saturday, January 6th (rain date January 7th) and Saturday, January 13th (rain date January 14th) from 12pm-3pm. A third bonus Christmas Tree-Cycle will take place on Saturday, January 20th (rain date January 21st) at Laurel Hill West Cemetery from 12pm-2pm.

These highly anticipated events are family-friendly farm festivals and fundraisers in support of the nonprofit. There is a $20 donation requested per Christmas tree. These donations support Philly Goat Project’s free year-round programming including community goat walks, children’s literacy events in libraries & schools, environmental education events in city parks, youth job training program, the monthly All Abilities RAMble (inclusive animal-assisted therapy program for the special needs community), and new this year, a bereavement garden & grief garden open to the community coming soon.

Beyond the Christmas tree drop, activities during the farm festivals will include exploring the farm, a roaring fire pit with free s’mores, free hot cocoa, farm Olympics games for kids (only at Awbury festivals), and a petting area with the goats. You can join the fun even if you don’t have a tree! Just park and walk into the farm using the Washington Lane entrance (look for the ambassadors to guide you). A “Quiet Visiting Area” will also be available for special needs friends.

Donated Christmas trees will become snacks for the goats and/or turned into wood chips used to cover trails in city parks and community gardens throughout Philadelphia thanks to a partnership with the Philadelphia Streets Department.
