The Historic Druid Hills Home & Garden Tour was back this year after missing two seasons due to the pandemic. What a wonderful return we had with the most perfect weather! We couldn’t have asked for better. We featured twelve stunning homes, all of which are situated on streets on Olmsted's original plan for Druid Hills. Many meandered through our Olmsted Linear Park as they walked the tour - Olmsted himself would have been thrilled to see it!
A HUGE thank you to our gracious hosts who opened their jaw-dropping homes to us and all of the amazing volunteers that pulled this tour off. And, of course, none of it would have been possible without such wonderful support from our generous sponsors
We can’t forget to thank Kit Eisterhold who not only orchestrated the tour but also sponsored it. WOW! What a wonderful job you and the tour committee did! We're already planning for next year. If you are interested in being a part of this very special event, reach out to us!

After the spirited Olmsted 200 Tennis Tournament, which was hosted at Druid Hills Golf Club on Monday, friends and neighbors got the chance to get spiffed up in their finest for the beautiful Olmsted 200th Birthday Gala at Callanwolde on Tuesday! We celebrated more than just Olmsted's birthday - we celebrated having the chance to be together at a special event, once again.
Lots of delicious food by Zest, signature drinks, dancing to Joe Grandsden, seeing old friends and meeting new ones was the name of the evening. It couldn't have been more beautiful.
Our Shredding Event was a Huge Success!
February 2022The document shredding event, organized by the DHCA membership committee, went very smoothly. A total of 107 cars were processed thru the document shredding area. Once finished, the shredding truck was just about filled to capacity! All the shredded paper will be recycled into those brown paper napkins you see at food courts.

From awesome music and lots of activities for the kiddos to do, Open Streets Emory Village was a great time for all that attended. The Emory Village Alliance (EVA) hosted this annual event and once again provided a spectacular neighborhood festival for Druid Hills.
Our DHCA sponsored and organized the Halloween Parade & Costume Contest. It was definitely one of the highlights of the afternoon! The Druid Hills High School Marching Band and several of our community's elected officials led the parade thru Emory Village. We provided some great prizes to our costume winners, thanks to local businesses and residents. Thank you to everyone who helped organize this great event, and everyone that came out to enjoy it!
