VFM Gingerbread House Competition

We’re excited to announce that we’ll be hosting a Gingerbread House Competition in conjunction with our Holiday Market on December 12th.  We’re looking forward to seeing what kind of creative structures will be built from candy and cookies.  We have 6 categories including child and youth categories!  Each entry in the child and youth categories will receive a 2016 Playland One Day Playpass from our friends at the PNE.

We encourage you to enter individually or on behalf of your business.  Entry fees range from $5-$20 and prizes range from $50 – $250 per category.  We hope to have entries in all categories and from all across the city.  Visit our Gingerbread House Competition page for all the details including entry forms.

The Gingerbread House Competition takes place alongside our annual Holiday Market which will feature over 60 vendors selling their holiday best!  We say you can find everything for your holiday table and gift giving because our vendors bring a unique mix of food and craft, reflective of the talent we have at our combined 9 markets throughout the year.

NEW FOR THIS YEAR: We will have alcohol vendors sampling and selling wine, beer and spirits just like at our summer and winter regular season.

Join us as we celebrate the season with gingerbread and other tasty treats!  Mark your calendars and save room on your gift list for a trip to the Holiday Market and Gingerbread House Competition
