2013 Gingerbread House Competition

Check out this year's entries to the 2013 Gingerbread House Competition.

The 2013 holiday season is approaching, which means the 27th Annual Boston Christmas Festival is almost upon us! We are honored to announce that Housing Families will once again be the Official Charity Partner for the 20th Annual Gingerbread House Competition. The Gingerbread House Competition kicks off the Boston Christmas Festival, a celebration of crafts and specialty foods featuring over 350 master craftsmen, at Boston's Seaport World Trade Center on November 8-10, 2013.

Watch our CEO, Jim Goebelbecker's on Fox 25 News talk about HFI and the Gingerbread House Competition.

Listen to Jim on Magic 106.7 talk about the competition.

Amazing gingerbread house creations will be submitted for judging by some of New England's finest chefs and culinary institutions. Check out some of the entries from last year’s event; you’ll see how astounding these delicious works of art are! After the celebrity judges decide the big winners on Friday, the gingerbread houses will be sold. This is a wonderful opportunity to own a world class culinary creation, and best of all, all the proceeds go directly to Housing Families, helping us to continue the fight to end family homelessnessCheck out our very generous donors who have already adopted a gingerbread house to help homeless families!  These houses sell out quickly, so make sure to order yours today!
