November 2024 (Tentative Date)

Photos with Santa

Thank you for attending the Dunwoody UMC Holiday Festival 2023 and participating in Photos with Santa. We apologize for the delay in the distribution of photos and are working to get photos to families as quickly as possible. If you have not yet received your photos from the 2023 event, please contact Sean Penn for assistance.


The Dunwoody United Methodist Church Holiday Festival is a one-day, indoor event that features a juried show of beautiful arts and crafts items by talented artisans, in addition to a wide variety of other venues. We offer Attic Treasures, Book Nook, Casseroles to Go, Children’s Activities, Gourmet Shop, Photos with Santa and more. Our 80+ talented participating artists have been carefully selected from a long list of applicants.


With our growing reputation as one of the best indoor holiday festivals in the area, we are fortunate enough to attract artisans from all over Georgia and even as far away as South Carolina, Florida, and Virginia. Booths are located in the Fellowship Hall and Gym. This is a great opportunity to shop for “one of a kind” handmade items.

We look forward to hosting our next Holiday Festival in November of 2024. Proceeds from the 2023 event will go toward building our next Habitat House in the spring. Watch this space for updates on the 2024 event include dates, time and links for artisan and volunteer registration.

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 30 year span, we always look forward to the opportunity to serve our Dunwoody community through this celebrated tradition.



If you have questions about Holiday Festival or would like to know more about local mission opportunities, please contact me.
