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 vendors 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.
It takes a multitude of volunteers of all ages to help make this annual event a big success, providing assistance for everything from set-up, parking, concessions and more. We invite you to join our team to make this year’s Holiday Festival the best it can be. Volunteer opportunities are available starting Thursday, November 9 through Saturday, November 11. Look for volunteer registration to be available by September 2023.
All proceeds from the festival benefit Atlanta Habitat for Humanity. The money raised will support DUMC’s 33rd Habitat build, which will benefit another deserving family in 2024.
Contact our Missions Coordinator, Sean Penn for more details and available opportunities.

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.
