Over 130 Artisans • Book Nook • Huge Silent Auction Attic Treasures • Gourmet Shop • Casseroles to Go Photos with Santa • Kidz Zone with Games, Activities and Crafts Festival Fudge • Live Entertainment and Petting Zoo!
The festival is a one day indoor event that not only features a juried show of handmade crafts and original artwork with over 120 exhibitors, but also a wide variety of other venues. We offer a huge Silent Auction, Attic Treasures, Casseroles to Go, Gourmet Shop, Pancake Breakfast, Luncheon, Children's Activities, 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 3,600 shoppers attend our Holiday Festival.
All proceeds from this event will benefit our Habitat for Humanity Project. Our 2012 festival raised enough funds to build our 22nd Habitat for Humanity House. Members of our church will begin building the house in March of this year. As a result of the success of our 2012 show, we will make a family's "dream come true."
We sincerely thank you for your interest and hope you will consider applying for participation as an exhibitor in our 2013 Holiday Festival. Please read our Show Rules and Procedures before submitting an Application Form.
