Vendor Information


Dear Artists and Crafters,

The Dunwoody United Methodist Church proudly presents its 28th Annual Holiday festival. The festival is a one day indoor event that will not only feature a juried show of beautiful arts and crafts items by 125 talented artisans, but also a wide variety of other venues. We offer a huge Silent Auction online, Attic Treasures, Book Nook, Casseroles to Go, Breakfast, Luncheon, Children’s Activities, Gourmet Shop, Photos with Santa, and more. More than 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 the holiday shopping. Traditionally, more than 3,500 shoppers attend this event. All proceeds will benefit our Habitat for Humanity Project. Our 2018 festival raised enough funds for members of our church to build our 29th Habitat home. As a result of the successful 2018 festival, we will make dreams come true for another family.

We welcome applications from Artists and Crafters and hope many of you will consider joining us in this worthwhile project. If interested, please read the requirements for participation outlined in the 2019 Artisans Rules and Procedures Form and submit a 2019 Artisan Application Form. Questions may be sent to dumcartisans@gmail.com.

History


The Dunwoody Community has come to know the DUMC Holiday Festival as one of the premier holiday events in the area.

But do you know how it all began? The roots of the Holiday Festival stretch back to 1967, when DUMC held a “Country Bazaar” – back when Dunwoody was truly in “the country”. In 1990, under the leadership of Rev. Dr. Wiley Stephens and co-chairs Molly Patrick and Sharon Edwards, the event grew and some of our favorite features of recent festivals came into being – Attic Treasures, children’s activities, concessions, Gourmet Shop, fantastic artisans and more. As we continue to grow and add more holiday magic to our festival throughout its 28 year span, we always look forward to the opportunity to serve our Dunwoody community through this celebrated tradition.
