The Wood will once again deck its halls and throw open its doors for one of the largest Gingerbread House Festivals in all of New England. The show opens Thanksgiving weekend and will run from November 27th through December 12th, 2015. Local artisans and bakers, experts and beginners alike show off their creative talents in a vast array of candy covered houses, trains and in some cases entire villages. With holiday music playing in the background and the spicy aroma of gingerbread in the air, the library provides the perfect holiday venue for showcasing the sugary artistic creations. “Ye Olde Gingerbread Shop” offers the opportunity to take home a bit of the magic with many holiday themed gifts and treats. This festival is a major fundraiser for The Wood and supports our educational programs and exhibitions. Be sure to mark your calendars to start the holidays off right with a classic seasonal event that is fun for both the young and the young at heart! Extended festival hours are Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, 10 am – 8 pm and Saturdays and Sundays, 10 am – 6 pm and admission is FREE.
