Chrysalis Center’s Annual Christmas Tree and Holiday Wreath Sale will be held on Saturday, December 5, 2020 from 9:00am – 2:00pm in Chrysalis Center’s upper parking lot at 255 Homestead Avenue in Hartford. This annual event is generously sponsored by The Hartford and provides complimentary trees to families living in the North End Hartford, the poorest neighborhoods in Hartford.


On Saturday, December 5th Chrysalis Center’s Hartford campus turns into a winter wonderland featuring fresh-cut balsam fir Christmas Trees and wreaths for sale to the public, as well as fresh baked goodies from La Cocina Catering, the organization’s social enterprise program which trains individuals in the culinary arts field to help them secure a job and become economically independent.

The event is held outdoors, and procedures are in place to ensure the safety of customers, volunteers, and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, which include wearing a mask and social distancing.


New this year is “Sponsor A Tree” which allows individuals to “sponsor” a Christmas tree online for people in need who may otherwise not be able to purchase a tree. To sponsor a tree visit:


All sales benefit Chrysalis Center to help transform lives. Cash, checks, MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express payments are gladly accepted. Chrysalis Center is grateful to The Hartford for its continued partnership and many years of sponsoring this community event.
