The Gingerbread Village features a grand display of over 40 handmade and entirely edible gingerbread structures. A model train also winds through the impressive exhibit of gingerbread homes, shops and buildings. All of the entries are sold during the Festival of Trees through silent auction.
Children and adults are invited to create their own entries for the Gingerbread Village display. If you would like to make an entry for the Gingerbread Village, please complete and return a Gingerbread Village Entry Form. Entry forms must be received by October 1. Space is limited and entry forms will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Please read the Gingerbread Village Guidelines for more details.
Gingerbread Village designers will receive four Festival of Trees general admission tickets for each entry. Designers will be listed in the Festival of Trees program and special insert in the State Journal-Register. Identification signage will also be provided each entry.
