Deck The Trees

The Monte Vista Hotel Presents Ninth Annual ‘Deck the Trees’ 

Black Mountain, NC – Named for two years by Explore Asheville as one of the top 5 events in the Swannanoa Valley at Christmas, you are invited to come experience Deck the Trees Christmas trees that bring joy to the whole community. Vote online or in person for your favorite tree and help us raise money for our Annual Fuel Fund to keep families warm. Be a part of creating something beautiful that also gives back to the community.  Prizes are awarded for the tree that raises the most money and for the tree that most represents the theme. This year’s theme is “And a Star Appeared.”

Calendar of Events:
Dec. 3, 2020 – Jan. 4, 2021

Deck The Trees has received extensive coverage by the Asheville Citizen Times, the Laurel of Asheville, Mountain Express and WNC Magazine. Explore Asheville has for many years listed Deck The Trees as one of the top five activities for the Christmas season. This publicity brought many folks to Black Mountain and has raised an astounding $115,000 over the past nine years for the Swannanoa Valley Christian Ministry Fuel Fund in donations both large and small. Most importantly, many families had the comfort of a warm home in winter because of our community. The owners of The Monte Vista, Southern Proper Hospitality, are looking forward to hosting and supporting Deck The Trees this season. As always, every penny of every donation, sponsorship, and proceeds goes directly to the Fuel Fund of SVCM. All costs associated with Deck The Trees are absorbed by volunteers, participants and The Monte Vista Hotel.

No gift is too small to help keep your neighbor warm.
