The Bektash Shrine Center’s 19th annual Feztival of Trees is in full swing until Sunday, Dec. 1. This event is always a spectacle every year, with more than 100 elaborate, creative, funny and enticing artificial Christmas trees and gifts on display for all to see – and try to win.

The Fezitval – which derives its name from the iconic fez worn by Bektash Shrine members – has become one of the highlights of the holiday calendar in Concord, with between 10,000 and 12,000 attendees stopping by over the course of the week-plus it runs. We stopped by on Saturday to check out the selection, and we were not disappointed. 

The Bektash Shrine Center is at 189 Pembroke Road. Go to for more.
