5th Annual Gingerbread House Design Competition

Now in its fifth year, the Gingerbread House Design Competition is a fun and tasty way to highlight the delicious talents of Boston landscape and architecture firms. While challenging designers to explore a new medium, this sweet event also raises funds for the CDRC (Community Design Resource Center), a program of the BSA Foundation.

This year’s theme is “Boston, You’re My Home”.

Vote for your favorite gingerbread creation until midnight on December 31, 2016! Vote by bidding online or in person at BSA Space (290 Congress Street, Suite 200, Boston).

Votes serve as a People's Choice fundraising auction to benefit CDRC programs. The house with the greatest number of bids wins! The four guest celebrity judges will announce their choices at the reception for the Gingerbread House Design Competition on Monday, December 19, 2016, at BSA Space from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.

The exhibition is free, open to the public, and appropriate for all ages. Gallery hours are from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Friday, and 10:00 am to 5:00 pm weekends and holidays.The gingerbread houses are on display at BSA Space from December 12, 2016 until January 2, 2017.
