Springfield Museums, Annual Gingerbread Competition
November 23 - December 31
The Springfield Science Museum’s annual gingerbread exhibit has become one of the region’s best-loved traditions.
Experience the annual gingerbread competition and exhibit that meshes two of our favorite things—baking and creativity! The awe-inspiring entries celebrate Pop! Culture. The gingerbread creations are set amongst a display of festive holiday trees.
Visitors have an opportunity to vote for their favorite in the following categories:
- Professional Division: Bake Shops, Caterers, Restaurants, or Professional Bakers
- Adult Division: Individual or group adult, age 18 & up
- Youth Division: Individual or group youth, age 8-17
The Museum Store is also a major draw during the holidays, thanks to the wide variety of gifts available for all ages and tastes. Decorative glassware and handcrafted pottery items are available, along with a large selection of children’s games, books, and educational kits and models. Gift wrapping and parking is always free.
