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! Extended festival hours are Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, 10 am to 8 pm and Saturdays and Sundays, 10 am to 6 pm and admission is FREE.
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.
