  • GEHC Holiday Arts and Crafts Show & Breakfast

    The holidays mean traditions for many families and the Gwinnett Environmental & Heritage Center Holiday Arts and Craft Show is designed for families to kick-off the holiday season by spending a day together.

    On Saturday, December 7th from 11:00 am - 5:00 pm experience the GEHC Holiday Arts and Craft Show that will feature over 50 local vendors selling handmade crafts, jewelry, clothing, art, holiday decor and much more (And you can get all of your shopping done in a single afternoon)!


    During the show kids will have the opportunity to write their letters to Santa, enjoy our complimentary holiday arts and crafts station and enjoy our newest traveling exhibit - Coney Island Visions of An American Dreamland.

    If that wasn’t enough, that morning, families can register to have a light Breakfast With Santa, listen as he reads a classic holiday story and take a family photo with the jolly man himself (Pre-registration is required for Breakfast With Santa).
