The annual Gingerbread House Contest is a popular feature of the holiday season at Old Sturbridge Village during Christmas by Candlelight. Due to spatial and safety concerns, it is not possible to have the 2020 contest in the same format as previous years. Instead, we invited our friends and fans, near and far, to enter virtually! We received several dozen spectacular entries and we hope you enjoy this virtual exhibit.

Click on any of the images below to learn more about the entry, view a larger image, see other angles, and in some cases, even see the creators behind the sweet masterpiece!

Judges chose the category winners, and the public voted on the ‘Best in Show.’
