Annual Gingerbread House Festival: Land of Sweets at Wood Memorial Library and Museum
November 25, 2022 - December 18, 2022
The Friends of Wood Memorial Library and Museum invite you to join Clara and the Nutcracker Prince in the Land of Sweets, as you experience one of the largest gingerbread house festivals in New England. The Friends’ 12th Annual Gingerbread House Festival opens Thanksgiving weekend and runs from Friday, November 25th through Sunday, December 18th, 2022. Stroll past fairy tale houses and fantasy trains all covered with bright, colorful candy. Located on historic Old Main Street, the Wood Memorial Library provides the perfect holiday venue for showcasing the sugary artistic creations among sparkling lights and colorful decor.
Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season while gazing upon replicas of historical buildings alongside edible villages, all created by regional artisans and bakers, students and community members, expert and beginner alike. Finally, don’t forget to stop by “Ye Olde Gingerbread Shoppe” for the opportunity to take home a bit of the magic with many holiday themed gifts and treats.
The Wood Memorial Library & Museum is located at 783 Main Street, South Windsor, CT 06074. Festival hours are Thursdays and Fridays from 10am to 7pm; Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 5pm. The library is closed Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The festival is FREE and open to the public. However, donations from individuals visiting the festival are greatly appreciated, and we suggest an entry donation of $1-5 per person. You can additionally support the festival by purchasing raffle tickets and patronizing the gift shop.
