Gingerbread Festival
November 28 - December 13, 2014

Don't Miss New England's Largest Gingerbread Festival

November 28 - December 13

FESTIVAL HOURS:

Mondays, Thursdays & Fridays: 10 am - 8 pm

Saturdays & Sundays: 10 am - 6 pm

(CLOSED Tuesdays and Wednesdays)  

The Wood Memorial Library and Museum will once again deck its halls and throw open its doors for one of the largest Gingerbread House Festivals in all of New England.  This event is FREE and provides a great opportunity to make lasting holiday memories with your family and friends.

Local artisans and bakers, experts and beginners alike show off their creative talents in a vast array of candy covered houses, trains and in some cases entire villages.  Anyone is welcome to submit a gingerbread house and sign-ups are starting now, visit our website for more information.  With holiday music playing in the background and the spicy aroma of gingerbread in the air, the library will provide the perfect holiday venue for showcasing the sugary artistic creations.   “Ye Olde Gingerbread Shop” will also be open offering the opportunity to take home a bit of the magic with many holiday themed gifts and treats.

This festival is a major fundraiser for The Wood and supports our educational programs and exhibitions; last year we saw almost 4,000 visitors come through our doors and this year we are hoping for even more.   So start the holidays off right with a classic seasonal event that is fun for both the young and the young at heart!
