Christmas Festival Opens Today: Off to Judge a Gingerbread Contest

Today the 27th annual Christmas Festival opens at the Seaport World Trade Center.

The children have been so excited to be official judges this year with several others. For months they have been trying to imagine what the chefs will create. We’ve even looked at some photos from past years including the impressive Fenway gingerbread creation.

The Gingerbread House Competition benefits Housing Families, Inc. – a non-profit organization dedicated to ending family homelessness. This year the following restaurants and bakeries are participating: Ginger Betty’s Bakery, Wicked Goodies, Cakes for Occasions, Empire Asian Restaurant & Lounge, Entertainment Cruises, Mooo Restaurant, Area Four, Grill 23 & Bar, Del Frisco’s, Davio’s Lynnfield, Sweet Things Bakery, Finale, and Tosca.

In addition to the competition there is the artisan market. Crafts folk from all over the country come to Boston for this holiday event to exhibit and sell their handcrafted items. From home accessories to holiday treats and decorations there will be the perfect gift for everyone on your list..

The festival is at Seaport World Trade Center, 200 Seaport Boulevard
in Boston.

Parking is nearby as well as across the street at Seaport Garage. Costs range from $11 to $20.
