Rekindle Christmas Memories

This holiday season, Virginia Gingerbread Christmas is excited fill the hearts (and sometimes stomachs) of the young, old, and anywhere in between. Meet Mrs. Claus, fill your belly with delicious pancakes and view the most outrageously spectacular Gingerbread Houses on this side of town. Better yet, enter the Gingerbread House Competition yourself (or with a group of friends).

There’s no substitute for experiencing the magic for yourself. Join us and see how quickly the magic of Christmas spreads to your heart!


All proceeds from Virginia Gingerbread Christmas benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Charlottesville, which provides a home away from home for the families of seriously ill or injured children receiving medical treatment on holidays and every day.
