Adult Gingerbread Decorating Competition!

December 5, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm CST

Show off your construction skills at our 2017 Gingerbread Architecture Competition!

You don’t need to bring anything – just show up and create. We’ll supply materials and
refreshments. You’ll have two hours to realize your confectionery architectural masterpiece. No
experience with gingerbread construction? No problem. Unfamiliar construction technology has
never stopped architects before!

Prizes will be awarded for the top two structures, and the winning entries will remain on display
throughout December. The contest is co-sponsored by AIA Chicago. All proceeds will support
ongoing preservation activities at Glessner House, Henry Hobson Richardson’s masterpiece of
urban residential design.

Advance registration is required as space and supplies are limited.

Snacks and adult beverages provided. Tours of Glessner House Museum available.

$25 entry fee per person or team
$20 for students and Glessner House Museum or AIA Chicago members
