Gingerbread Weekend 2015 will take place on Friday, December 11 at 6 and 8 p.m., and Saturday, December 12 at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m. Gingerbread Weekend is an annual event which allows kids and adults alike to construct a homemade creation from homemade gingerbread, fresh icing, and delicious candies. The event is a sight to behold! Each cookie is handmade at the Noah Webster House and fun candy mixes offer a variety of artistic options.

New: Teen Night!
On Friday, December 11 at 6 p.m., teens can build an artistic house with tiny candies and colored icing. Snacks will be available at this session which is a drop-off event for kids ages 12 and over.

On Friday, have a night out at the Noah Webster House!
On Friday, December 11 at 8 p.m., adults age 21 and over can join us for a BYOB gingerbread house event! Bring your favorite beer or wine (we’ll provide the glasses), grab a seat, and build away. The evening will feature light hors d’oeuvres, tiny decorative candies, and colored icing.

On Saturday, spend a family-friendly day at the Noah Webster House!
At three different sessions, kids and adults alike can build a delightful (and delicious!) house from holiday themed candies, white icing, and homemade cookies. A photographer will be on site to take holiday photos! Make your reservation when you register. Kids can also enjoy a wintery storytime and play in Noah's Discovery Learning Space while their house dries.

Each house kit is $13 for museum members and $16 for non-members*. BYOB night kits are $17 for museum members and $20 for non-members.

*Pre-registration is required as space is limited. A maximum of two people may work on each house kit. When you register, please do so for the number of kits you would like to purchase.
