Hagley's Gingerbread House Contest

Join Hagley’s Third Annual Gingerbread House Contest and your creation might win a prize! 

Registration deadline is Friday November 6, 2020. 

Entries will be displayed from Tuesday, December 1, 2020, through Sunday, January 3, 2021.

Contest Theme: The theme the competition is "Hometown Heroes.” Hagley invites participants to build their own gingerbread house and celebrate essential personnel on the front lines or someone they feel has been a hero during these challenging times.

These amazing creations will be on display from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Millwright Shop in the center of the Hagley Powder Yard. Visitors will wind their way down Gingerbread Lane as Hagley follows all guidelines for social distancing and a one-way flow of visitor traffic.

Award-winning pastry chef Michele Mitchell will again create an original gingerbread house that celebrates the many first responders on the front lines during the pandemic. Her creation will be on display in the lobby of the Millwright Shop.

Entry Fee: There is no cost to enter. Registration is required.

Prizes: The prize in each of the three categories is a $100 Amazon gift card and a Hagley membership.

Judging: A panel of invited judges will make awards in two categories, with the third category winner determined by an online vote via Hagley's Facebook page.

1) Adult/Families
2) Youth 17 and under (Please note that the work on the gingerbread house must be done primarily by the youth, with minimal help from adults.)
3) Facebook People’s Choice (online vote via Hagley's Facebook page)

Size Requirement: Houses must be no larger than 16 inches in any direction. Please note that this includes the entry's height.

Drop off: Entries may be dropped off at Hagley on Sunday, November 29, or Monday, November 30.
