Thanksgiving-time Events at Bayfront Convention Center

by Ariana Malizia, Event Coordinator

Festival of Trees 2018
Live ReindeerAs Thanksgiving creeps closer, our doors will be opening yet again for the annual Festival of Trees event.  This affair takes place the weekend following Thanksgiving, and has proven to be a door buster for children and adults alike. Guests who enter the building receive a ticket to choose their favorite decorative tree in the Grand Ballroom, and the winner is chosen at the conclusion of their final day, Sunday, November 25. The winner of 2017 was the NICU Nurses at Hamot. From meeting real reindeer, busting out all moves in Santa’s Dance Party room, writing letters to Soldiers and having Breakfast or Lunch with Santa, there’s never a dull moment in the day when you come to this festival!

Festival ticket prices:
-$6 for children and $10 for adults.
Breakfast/Lunch with Santa (includes tickets to the Festival)
-$15 for children and $20 for adults.

Hours:   Friday 10:00AM-8:00 PM
Saturday 10:00AM-8:00PM
Sunday 10:00AM-5:00PM

MMA Bayfront Brawl 2018
BoxingPrior to the Festival’s opening day (Friday November 23), another event will be hosted the evening before Thanksgiving; that being the annual MMA Bayfront Brawl. Tickets for this event are $30 for General Admission, $50 for VIP and $600 for a VIP table (tables are sold as a single unit, not by chair), which are located closest to the octagon. This bout is brought to you by Bizzarro Promotions and is another high-volume event during the month of November. Doors will open at 6:00PM and the fights begin promptly at 7:00PM. While you’re here, you can enjoy an all brands bar as well as our many offerings at the concessions stand!
