11/30 - 12/23: Gingerbread House Extravaganza
JHS is proud to present this beloved holiday tradition for three weeks each December.
Visitors enjoy gigantic, creative gingerbread houses built by chefs, bakers, architects, engineers, culinary school students, families, young people and other individuals. These tasty creations are placed on display at the Jacksonville Historical Society headquarters, historic Old St. Andrews, immediately across the street from the Veteran’s Memorial Arena.
The Gingerbread House Extravaganza showcases some of the most creative art exhibited during the year in Jacksonville. Gingerbread and confection creations from traditional houses to animals and fairy tale themes offer holiday magic. Hundreds of hours are required for the construction of these edible structures – amazing sights to behold! Children love to play the scavenger hunt and find items throughout the display
