Gingerbread Village Discovery Center

Gingerbread Village Entries Due November 27!

Calling all community members – supermarkets, bakeries, scout troops, chefs, schools, everyday cooks, and gingerbread enthusiasts! It’s that time of year to get out your aprons, put on your chef’s hat, and whip up a batch of gingerbread for this year’s holiday exhibit, A Village of Gingerbread – Our Home Town! Anyone can participate.
Use your imagination and creativity to bake and decorate a building, house or structure from one of your favorite places – your house, school, store or business, library or park as you make a little magic for this oh, so yummy, holiday display.
All participants are invited to our Grand Opening as part of Broome County Arts Council’s First Friday Art Walk on December 1, 2023 from 4-7PM. Entries must be submitted by Monday, November 27, 2023. Come and delight in our gingerbread village from December 1 thru December 30. For more information, please call 607-773-8661 x208 or e-mail
