{Gingerbread House 1}

Celebrate a storybook holiday this year and experience one of the largest gingerbread house festivals in New England. Stroll past fairy tale houses and fantasy trains all covered with bright, colorful candy.   Gaze upon replicas of historical buildings alongside edible villages, all created by regional artisans and bakers, students and community members, expert and beginner alike.  The Wood, located on historic Old Main Street, provides the perfect holiday venue for showcasing the sugary artistic creations among sparkling lights and colorful decor.

Musical performances, author signing and story time events will also be scattered throughout the festival providing patrons with an uplifting and creative break from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.  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.
