Event Details

Brief description: Celebrate the holidays with a new tradition—the SunCommon Gingerbread Competition! Assemble a team, stock up on peppermints, candy canes and gumdrops, and read up on solar panels. Yes, you read that right. Solar panels. This family-friendly gingerbread house competition requires all houses to include an edible version of those shiny, black, renewable-energy-producing photovoltaic cells. Get creative! Extra points will be awarded for additional sustainable house tech, like Tesla Powerwall. Over $800 in cash prizes will be awarded!

In addition to the stunning gingerbread houses, there will be live music, mulled cider, and fresh baked bread from the Elmendorph Inn’s one-of-a-kind beehive oven. We hope you’ll join us! Mark your calendar for a festive afternoon at the Elmendorph Inn Holiday Open House.

To participate in the Gingerbread competition, please complete complete this online entry form. Space is limited, so be sure to enter early!
