Gingerbread House Competition and Exhibit

It’s time for our 19th annual Gingerbread House Competition and Exhibit! Creations will be on display from Friday, December 1 through Friday, December 22. Join us for an opening reception on December 1st from 4–6pm.

The theme this year is “The Wizard of Oz.” Participation in the theme is voluntary. Your own original designs are always welcome, but there is an additional prize awarded for “Best of Theme.”

Prizes of Middlebury Money will be awarded in all categories. These certificates are redeemable in over 100 Middlebury-area businesses.

The competition is open to individuals of all ages and abilities, and to organizations, school groups, and businesses as well. Visitors to the exhibit are invited to vote for their favorite entry to receive the “People’s Choice” award.

Each year we are amazed by dozens of reinterpretations of the traditional gingerbread house that incorporate a huge array of edible elements. Join us this year with your own creative ideas rendered in food format.
