2nd Annual Gingerbread House Contest

Gingerbread House Contest Open to all

The Gingerbread House Contest is open to all. Last year's professional contest was well received so, once again, we invite all catering, restaurant, and bakery chefs throughout the Napa Valley to bake and bedeck a gingerbread house, gingerbread village, or a truck or tractor in honor of the Annual Lighted Tractor Parade. These displays of talent will be showcased at the 49th Annual Calsitoga Christmas Faire for the day and then go back to their homes or restaurants for display throughout the holiday season.

Starting this year, we invite everyone outside of the professional realm to participate. Show us what you've got!
