New this year, KDB is hosting a tree giveaway at the Redbud Festival! Through this special opportunity, Redbud Festival attendees are eligible to receive a FREE 3-gallon size tree to take home. Complete a quick 30-minute tree care course on-site at the festival, and take home your very own tree – it’s that easy! Tree Giveaway at the Redbud Festival is made possible through the Denton Tree Initiative, a citywide partnership between KDB and the City of Denton to plant 12,000 trees by 2019.
The Redbud Festival traces its roots back to an annual Texas Woman’s University Festival that was held from the 1930s until 1981 to celebrate the school’s beautification and tree planting efforts. In 1994, Keep Denton Beautiful gave the festival new life in honor of Denton’s designation as the “Redbud Capital of Texas.”
