Join us on December 10th, for the 4th Annual Downtown Gingerbread House Competition! This year the event will be held at the beautiful Graduate Iowa City, in Poindexter Coffee just off the ped mall entrance. There will be two 2 hour competitions with 1 hour and 30 minutes for creating and 30 minutes for judging and awards. Winners will be announced and receive a prize at the end of each competition.

Tickets will be $40/gingerbread house and each house can have up to 4 decorators. Each group will have 1 hour and 30 minutes to construct and decorate their houses. The competitions will be 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. Each competition will have a 12 and under category and an all ages category.

To participate in this event, you must pre-register by purchasing a ticket and identifying your shift. A ticket includes entry for parties of up to four people, and includes: gingerbread house pieces, royal frosting, limited candy supplies to decorate, and boxing so you can take your creation home for the holidays! Groups are encouraged to bring extra supplies for their creation. All houses must be 100% edible.

While competitors are busy at work decorating their gingerbread houses, a holiday cash bar will be open to spectators and participants serving up specialty holiday drinks.

Winners will be announced and receive a prize at the end of each shift.
