Hagley's 2019 Gingerbread House Contest

Hagley's 2019 Gingerbread House Contest

Your Gingerbread House will be on display at Hagley and you will be eligible for a prize when you enter!

To coincide with our museum holiday décor, this year’s theme is “Christmas Trees Past & Present”—just a little food for thought while you’re baking... or cook up something spectacular of your own creation! Designs should be family-friendly. 

Entries should be dropped off at the Hagley Visitor Center (200 Hagley Creek Road, Wilmington, DE 19807) second floor, on Sunday, November 19, between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. The structures will be on display starting November 23 and throughout December. Please contact Tracy Werkley, twerkley@hagley.org, if you need to make special arrangements for your dropoff.
