The Great Gingerbread Show

Exhibit on until December 23

Admission is free

Come see what businesses and individuals in town have baked up for this SWEET show!

Gingerbread houses are built all over the world around the festive season, but they originally came from Germany in the 16th century. Traditionally the cookie houses were decorated with foil and gold leaf which became associated with Christmas tradition. 

They became increasingly popular when the Brothers Grimm wrote Hansel and Gretel, with two lost children stumbling upon a house made entirely of treats in the middle of the forest. It is still not clear whether gingerbread houses originated as a result of this fairytale or vice versa.

The Station Arts thought it would be fun to challenge individuals, groups, organizations and businesses from the community to create gingerbread houses for our December 2023 exhibit. We are so pleased with the creative and diverse entries! Thanks for baking up a wonderful show.
