Every year the Savannah Harbor Foundation hosts their Gingerbread Village Competition, attracting both expert and novice gingerbread … engineers? … from around the region who compete to create the most elaborate, beautiful, and charming gingerbread creations for the annual Savannah Harbor Gingerbread Village display and contest.
Throughout the fall and prior to the annual Savannah Harbor Gingerbread Village competition, various culinary seminars were offered to demonstrate gingerbread house building with the hope of helping, exciting and inspiring would be gingerbread house contestants – so you know you’re going to see some amazing gingerbread creations!
Contestants in the annual Savannah Harbor Gingerbread Village competition are split into three categories: adult – ages 18 and over, student – ages 13 to 17, and child – 5 to 12. Prizes of up to $1,500 in cash awards are given out to four winners in each category (five for adults). Judging takes place well before the display is opened to the public – but you’ll still have the opportunity to participate in the judging as you can cast your vote in the Viewer’s Choice Awards!
Whether you’re interested in voting or not, the Savannah Harbor Gingerbread Village competition is a holiday tradition well worth the time to visit. Be sure to stop by to view all the wonderful, whimsical, edible, and deliciously beautiful gingerbread creations – and vote for your favorite, if you wish – before they’re all gone: December 30th, 2015.
