Jonesborough's Gingerbread House Contest
Jonesborough’s Gingerbread Village is back! We’re looking for gingerbread houses, replicas of our historic buildings or whatever fun, confectionary building you can think of, to be displayed throughout downtown storefront windows starting December 3rd. The public will be able to see the Gingerbread Village displayed throughout Jonesborough's shop windows and vote on their favorites.
There are two ways you can participate! First, make a gingerbread house to enter. We will have 3 categories including Children, Adult/Family and Professional. First place and honorable mentions will be awarded for each. The public will also be encouraged to come stroll through town and view all the entries. Then, cast your vote for your favorite entry in each category to help decide the winners. Voting will take place Dec. 3rd through Dec. 18th and winners will be announced December 20th.
You can pick up a gingerbread house kit at the International Storytelling Center on Saturday, November 27th from 11am – 3pm or you can build your own house. Submissions must be dropped off at the International Storytelling Center on Wednesday, December 1st between 4 and 7pm.
Child and Adult First Place Winners will each receive $100 cash and the Professional First Place Winner will be awarded $500 cash. Deadline to enter is December 1st.
