Community Gingerbread House Exhibition

About the Exhibition:

Join the Brick Store Museum from December 19 through December 22 – four days only! – for an incredible treat: The Gingerbread House Exhibition!

Families, individuals (all ages!), and businesses are invited to share their works of gingerbread art with the community for the week before Christmas. All gingerbread houses will go on display on Tuesday, December 19 at 12pm through Friday, December 22 at 5pm.

Gingerbread houses can be simple, fancy, realistic or whimsical. Have fun with creativity, architecture, and design!

The community is invited to the Museum’s Festival of Traditions throughout the month of December; and especially during the week of December 19 through 22 to view the gingerbread houses made by community members.


Visitors will receive voting ballots to select their favorite creations; and the Museum will welcome guest judges to review the entries and award prizes. Mainly, winners receive bragging rights for the year!

To Participate:

It is FREE to participate.

There is no theme as we’d like to see what our community creates! Give us a heads up that you’re bringing your gingerbread house by emailing to let us know.

Gingerbread lenders must drop off their entries between Sunday, December 10 through  Sunday, December 17 at the Museum’s Front Desk (please check out Visit Us page for open hours!). Participants will be asked to fill out a simple exhibition card, including Name, Category (Child, Adult, Business), Contact Information, Title and 1-2 Sentences on your gingerbread structure. Your name, title, and description will be displayed next to your gingerbread house for the week.


ALL gingerbread houses must be picked up on Saturday, December 23, between 10:00am – 12:00pm, unless you would like the Museum to dispose of it for you or if other arrangements have been made.
