The Dunwoody United Methodist Church proudly presents the 24th Annual Holiday festival. The festival is an indoor event that will not only feature a juried show of beautiful handmade arts and crafts items by over 120 talented artisans, but also a wide variety of other venues. We offer a huge Silent Auction online, Attic Treasures, Casseroles to Go, Breakfast, Luncheon, Children's Activities, Gourmet Shop, Photos with Santa, and more. Over 500 volunteers participate to help make each annual event a big success. The Dunwoody Community strongly supports our Holiday Festival and feels it is a wonderful way to begin their holiday shopping. Traditionally, over 3,500 shoppers attend our Holiday Festival.
All proceeds from this event will benefit our Habitat for Humanity Project. Our 2014 festival raised enough funds to build two houses this year. Members of our church will begin building the houses in April. As a result of the success of our 2014 show, we will make dreams come true for two families.
We sincerely thank you for your interest and hope many of you will consider joining us in this worthwhile project by participating as a vendor, donating to the silent auction, volunteering to help in different venues, or most importantly, by attending this wonderful event.
Make sure you register to bid on Habitat Silent auction items! It's easy and safe.
