The National Gingerbread House Day is on Saturday December 12th

During the holidays we enjoy and think more about gingerbread. On Saturday December 12th is National Gingerbread House Day. In Western North Carolina, this is even more of a celebration, because of the 28th Annual National Gingerbread House Competition at The Omni Grove Park Inn in Asheville.

According to the Omni Grove Park Inn it is revolutionizing the National Gingerbread House Competition the largest in the world! – for the 2020 holiday season to ensure that the competition’s legacy built on design, innovation and tradition continues safely for future generations.

The competition will continue virtually without a public display of Gingerbread Houses at the historic hotel due to restrictions surrounding COVID-19. Considering this, the hotel is generating unique, engaging experiences in place of a physical display, including socially distanced alternatives for hotel guests and fans at home to view the Gingerbread finalists.

A renowned group of food, arts and media professionals – including Food Network star Carla Hall – will formally judge the Gingerbread designs both virtually and in-person.
