Registration is officially open for the 2023 Gingerbread House Contest! This year marks our fourth annual Gingerbread House Contest. Every year, the Gingerbread House Contest brings community members of all ages together to showcase their creativity in the spirit of the holidays. Gingerbread houses are displayed downtown during the month of December.
Exercise those creative baking skills and bring family and friends together to create a sweet work of holiday art. The structures can be simple or ornate and decked with your favorite candies (we’ve got barrels of them if you need inspiration).
Community members of all ages and skill levels are encouraged to participate.
Participants in the gingerbread house contest can register at the link below by Saturday, December 2, and bring creations to the Floyd Country Store during business hours between December 1-5. The houses will be displayed in the windows of the Floyd Country Store, The Soda Fountain, and other downtown businesses to be admired from outside through December 24, with votes cast by the community online before December 20. Winners will be announced on December 21, with excellent prizes donated by The Floyd Country Store, The Soda Fountain, and other local businesses!
Award categories include General, Youth, Popular, Judges’ Choice, Creative, and Business. Kids are encouraged to enter their own creations into the Youth category (13 and under). Local businesses are invited to participate and be represented in our Business Category.
