National Gingerbread Competition

Written by Matt Hollingsworth

It all began with a small group of gingerbread houses built by community members in 1992 as another way to celebrate the holiday season with no plans to continue the following year. There was no possible way to know that more than two decades later The Omni Grove Park Inn National Gingerbread House Competition™ would be one of the nation’s most celebrated and competitive holiday events.

The official 2023 Gingerbread display begins on Monday, November 27, 2023 and will continue through Tuesday, January 2, 2024.

“The 12 Days of Gingerbread” presents one of the Top 12 finalists, per day, on the hotel’s Facebook and Instagram channels from December 1-12, 2023. Tune in via Facebook (@omnigroveparkinn) & Instagram (@omnigrovepark).
