Host your Private Event at the Donaldson-Bannister Farm

Dunwoody has a Private Event venue.  The Donaldson-Bannister Farm is located on 2.89 acres at the intersection of Chamblee-Dunwoody and Vermack Roads. The circa 1870 house is listed on both the Georgia and the National Register of Historic Places. The home and the barn have been totally rehabilitated with modern modifications for comfort and ADA accessibility.

Come take a stroll around the grounds that are lush with ornamentals and hardwoods; relax with a picnic in the meadow; or enjoy a spot of tranquility on one of the benches surrounding the fountain. The Donaldson-Bannister Farm is officially open with the grounds accessible daily from sunrise to sunset. The house is open by appointment and can be booked for events such as weddings, corporate events, parties, religious celebrations, holiday parties, reunions, retreats and meetings of all kinds.



The Main House has the seating capacity of 50-60 and has several rooms that can easily be transformed into meeting rooms, with one (1) main meeting room or several smaller breakout meeting areas. There are lovely outdoor spaces including an arbor, brick pavillion area and flowing fountain immediately adjacent to the Main House as well as an open meadow. The outside property can accommodate 200+ and may be booked for private events. Parking and shuttle arrangements are available for large events.

QUOTE from a recent event held at the Donaldson-Bannister Farm:

We hosted a graduation party at the Donaldson-Bannister Farm in May and could not have been more impressed. It was extra special for us because many of the graduating boys helped clear the land as part of Dunwoody High School football’s ongoing community service.  The property is beautiful and rich with history. Our guests had so many wonderful comments on the unique atmosphere of the party.  This is truly a unique gem in Dunwoody. Thank you Dunwoody Preservation Trust and the City of Dunwoody for revitalizing this gorgeous property in Dunwoody.


The Donaldson-Bannister Farm is available to rent for private events. We are able to host more than one event per day, if available. Check our calendar below for availability.
