The Enchanted Forest

The elves, penguins, bears and charming holiday characters in The Enchanted Forest Festival of Trees are getting ready for you and your whole family this holiday season.  This is a 65-year-old Memphis tradition.

The Enchanted Forest is a magical experience full of delightful animated characters.  Elves are busy making toys while penguins, bears and mice play in the snow.  A model train winds its way around a miniature snow-covered village while the nearby Gingerbread Village smells delightful!

Thousands of twinkling lights shine from dozens of beautifully-decorated trees lining the mezzanine.  Area businesses, churches and other volunteers have decorated the trees, which are sponsored by local corporations and individuals, and you’re sure to find a favorite.
