Contests at the event:
Gingerbread House: Sat Dec 2 (Reserve by Mon Nov 20)
Register your gingerbread house kit ($25) before Monday Nov 20. On Saturday Dec 2, you will be given your pre-ordered gingerbread house kit and will be given one hour to craft your best gingerbread house possible! We will judge them that evening on aesthetic beauty, creativity, color, and structural integrity.
Cookie Bake-Off: Sat Dec 9
Bake your best holiday cookies at home and bring at least 5 samples on Saturday Dec 9 from 3-4pm. If you are a vendor and want to sell your cookies, you must bake them at a commercial kitchen. Our panel of judges will rate your treats based on aesthetic, taste, and uniqueness. Winner will be announced by 6pm!
