The Athens Gingerbread Guild welcomes participants of all ages to enter their 2019 Gingerbread House Competition appearing in downtown Athens in the space next to Chick Music (230 W. Clayton St., Athens, GA). Early Bird registration is open now through November 25th, and the deadline to enter is December 2nd. There are individual, youth, and team competitive categories, and the non-competitive Gingerbread Jr. Youth House Decorating Party. The gingerbread houses will be on display December 5th through the 8th. The display is free and open to the public.
“Last year’s competition had 20 registrants and the weekend’s events made it possible for us to donate $1500 to the Young Urban Builders. 2018 was great! This year we’d love to double our entrants and donations,” said co-founder and baker Johanna Nicol. All events will be fundraisers for the Young Urban Builders. Competitive individual, youth and team entries are $25 and there is a non-competitive class for juniors for $15.
