SunCommon Gingerbread House Competition


Dec 8, 2019
12:00 PM until 04:00 PM


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 our online entry form. Space is limited, so be sure to enter early!
