Dunwoody United Methodist Church Holiday Festival


The Dunwoody UMC Annual Holiday Festival is a one-day indoor event in November that features a juried show of beautiful handmade arts and crafts items by more than 115 talented artisans. It also has a wide variety of other venues, including an online Silent Auction, Attic Treasures, Book Nook, Casseroles to Go, Breakfast, Luncheon, Children's Activities, Gourmet Shop, Photos with Santa and more. More than 500 volunteers help make this annual event a big success, providing hands and feet for everything from set up to parking to concessions and more. All proceeds from the 3,500+ shoppers benefit DUMC’s Habitat for Humanity project. 2019 marks the 28th Holiday Festival for Dunwoody UMC, and the proceeds will fund the building of our 30th Habitat home.
