51st Annual Gingerbread Village and Christmas Bazaar
Walking in a Winter Wonderland! What a way to start December with the joyous sounds of holiday music, the scents of holiday treats and the delicious taste of gingerbread.
The parishioners of St. George’s Episcopal Church in Middlebury, CT welcome all to come and share this festive week-long event.
About the Festival:
For over five decades, St. George's parish has graciously welcomed the community to visit their magical village of gingerbread creations. Parishioners, both young and old are often heard collaborating and sharing ideas about candy, construction and design choice.
Each piece displayed in the village is handcrafted and completely edible. Houses are often built from not just gingerbread, but pasta, beans, gum and breakfast cereal. In addition to houses, visitors will likely see sleigh riders, snowmen, reindeer and perhaps even Santa. All items are on sale and will be available for pick up on the final day.
This mission is held near and dear to the heart of St. George's. It has become part of a local holiday tradition for many, and we cordially welcome all visitors to come enjoy our truly unique display.
In addition to the village, the bazaar offers a bake shoppe, the opportunity to decorate your own cookie, raffle baskets and Christmas crafts for sale. Gingerbread house kits will also be for sale, providing everything needed to create your own masterpiece at home.
Lunch will be available Saturday, December 1st and Saturday, December 8th from 11:00 am to 2:30 pm. As well as all-you-can-eat breakfast on December 8th from 8:30 am-11:00 am.
