Dorset Gingerbread House Contest and Tour 2015

Create a vision of holiday magic and cheer for the Dorset holiday season.

The Dorset Chamber is proud to sponsor our first Gingerbread House Contest and Tour. Ali, from H.N. Williams, came to us with this great idea to celebrate the holiday season as a community.

The 2015 Dorset Gingerbread House Contest & Tour is underway at the following locations!  (registration for 2015 is closed)

H.N. Williams, JK Adams, Long Trail School, Dorset Inn, Barrows House, Flowerbrook Pottery, 3 Pears Gallery, Church St. and Berkshire Bank on Church St.

“Take a Selfie with a Gingerbread House” Contest


Take your selfie picture with any of the Gingerbread Houses on the tour and post the our facebook page! You could win a gift certificate to H.N. Williams!

We are inviting local Dorset businesses and amateurs from the surrounding areas to participate in the contest by making a gingerbread house.  Prizes will be awarded in the Professional and Amateur Categories.  We will be displaying our village of Gingerbread Houses throughout Dorset businesses during the holiday season.
