National Gingerbread House Competition

In 1992, the Gingerbread Competition began as a small, mostly local event held at The Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC, and has now grown to become one of the country’s most beloved holiday traditions and a serious competition to many who seek the title of grand prize.  Beginning in mid-November and continuing through December, The Omni Grove Park Inn and Asheville are the nation’s gingerbread capitol as contestants, pastry chefs and famous food star judges cross the country to celebrate the intricate edible creations.
