Y’s Men Christmas Tree Lot 2023

The wait is over. The Westfield Area Y’s Men Christmas Tree Lot opens this weekend. New year. New look. Still the best selection of trees, wreaths, and more.

What: Westfield Area Y’s Men Christmas Tree Lot 2023
Where: Elm Street Field
When: November 25th to December 23rd (while supplies last)

Y’s Men Christmas Tree Lot 2023

After unloading truck-full after truck-full, the lot has been set. Gates open promptly at 9 am on Saturday, November 25th. The lot stays open from 9 am to 6 pm on Saturdays and Sundays and from 5 pm to 9 pm on weeknights. We will remain open as long as our supply lasts. But I must warn you. We run out well before the 23rd every single year. So, I strongly encourage you to plan on shopping early for the best selection.

Like years past, we offer Fraser firs and Balsam firs to hang your Christmas decorations on. Additionally, we showcase beautiful wreaths (a lovely way to welcome guests to Christmas dinner), evergreen roping (perfect for those holiday photos on the stairs), and grave stands (to honor our loved ones who can no longer be with us during the holidays). We also provide tree stands for sale just in case you find yourself without one.

New this year is our beautifully redesigned trailer. While the old white one served us well for many, many years, we thought it was time for something new. Thanks to Maria Baker, we boast a brand new gingerbread house sales trailer that looks good enough to eat. What do you think of it? Let me know in the comments below. Or, better yet, seek me out at the lot and let me know in person.

Fanwood Santa Parade

For our friends over in Fanwood, I have good news. The Santa Parade returns in 2023. What does that mean? Santa takes a moment from his busy schedule to visit Fanwood on December 16th to bring presents to good little boys and girls all over town. If you want to ensure that your child/children receive a gift directly from the big man, drop it off at the Fanwood Fire Department between 5 pm and 9 pm on November 27th to December 1st. All gifts must be no bigger than a shoebox, come pre-wrapped, and include the child’s name, parent’s/guardian’s name, delivery address, and a phone number in clear letters on the box. Only kids aged 14 and under can be part of Santa’s parade.
