Description

Travel down Lollipop Lane to Gum Drop Street and experience one of the largest Gingerbread House Festivals in New England. The show opens the Friday after Thanksgiving and will run from November 24th through December 10th, 2017. Stroll past fairy tale houses and fantasy trains all covered with bright, colorful candy. Gaze upon replicas of historical buildings alongside edible villages, all created by regional artisans and bakers, students and community members, expert and beginner alike.candy stripe2 (1)

The Wood located on historic Old Main Street, provides the perfect holiday venue for showcasing the sugary artistic creations among sparkling lights and shimmering decor. Peak in on a Victorian Candy Shop display or linger at “The Legend of Santa Claus” display. There will even be a photo area where a selfie or family holiday photo can be taken. Select musical performances will also be scattered throughout the festival providing patrons with an uplifting and creative break from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. snowman

Finally, don’t forget to stop by “Ye Olde Gingerbread Shoppe” for the opportunity to take home a bit of the magic with many holiday themed gifts and treats. This festival is a major fundraiser for The Wood and supports our educational programs, archives and exhibitions. Be sure to mark your calendars to start the holidays off right with a classic seasonal event that is fun for both the young and the young at heart! Extended festival hours are Thursdays and Fridays, 10 am – 8 pm and Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays 10 am – 5 pm. Please note The Wood is closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays. This festival is open to the public and Admission is FREE.
