Due to the limited number of registrations received, fundraising challenges and operational obstacles, the Savannah Harbor Foundation has decided to cancel our plans for the 2022 Great American Gingerbread Competition.
Register as a youth group, family, business or in the Official Gingerbread Competition to win top prizes and support area charities.
After the judging, competition entries are spread throughout Savannah's elite hotels, restaurants, shoppes and stores as visitors meander through picturesque squares enjoying the festive splendor our city has to offer.
Creativity + Skill + Hard Work = Big Cash Prizes!!!
With three new divisions, we want to attract the world's best culinary artists, engage school groups and spread Christmas cheer throughout Savannah, GA. Join us December 12 & 13 for a visit filled with Gingerbread. Drop off your house at The Desoto Hotel then explore all the festive atmospheres our Hostess City has to offer!
Our steering committee has the privilege of welcoming 3-time National Gingerbread Competition winner Pat Ashley Howard and others to help us create the most welcoming, fair and educational competition.
After the awards reception, the houses are relocated to unique shoppes, elite hotels and other area businesses as we create Savannah's Gingerbread Trail. December 13th through December 25th, we encourage visitors to walk through our magical squares arriving at our host locations to enjoy holiday fare or pick up a great gift for that someone special.
Sign up to get updates as our celebration gets closer.
and due to limited resources, organizers have decided to cancel the 2022 competition. If you have interest in helping us bring this event back in 2023 please click the button to contact us.
