Dunwoody Village will host its annual Holiday Bazaar Thursday, Nov. 17 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The bazaar is the culmination of countless hours of preparation by Dunwoody’s residents, who organize the event as well as collect and create the items to be sold. All proceeds from the event are used to enhance Dunwoody resident programs.
The excitement for this year’s bazaar is heightened, not only because the Bazaar had been cancelled for the past two years due to Covid restrictions, but also because the event will take place in the brand-new auditorium that is part of the newly renovated Community Building.
The Bazaar features a wide array of items from which to choose, including unique handcrafted items, holiday decorations, attic treasures, costume jewelry, baked goods, house plants, and much more. Visitors can also take a chance on baskets of cheer.
Dunwoody Village is a continuing care retirement community located at 3500 West Chester Pike, Newtown Square, at the intersection with Bryn Mawr Avenue. For more information, visit www.dunwoody.org.
