Contestants from across the country will bring their gingerbread house masterpieces to The Grove Park Inn this holiday season. Delight in the imagination shown in these sugar-and-spice creations, strolling through the competition display is a sure way to be swept up in the holiday spirit.
The 2009 National Gingerbread House Competition will take place on Nov. 16, 2009 and the gingerbread houses will be on display from Nov. 18, 2009 – Jan. 3, 2010. Guests staying at our Asheville inn can view the houses Monday – Thursday, when the display is open to the public.
Guided Tours are now available through the Grove Park Inn. Go behind the scenes and to the front of the lines with their newest addition to the world of gingerbread! Guides will share stories about the artists and their houses, details about the construction of unusual entries, and a behind-the-scenes look at the workings of the judging, competition and display itself. These specialty tours are available Monday-Saturday throughout the display period. Ticket prices are $10 Adults; $5 Children (12 & under). Please contact Stacy or Janna for more information.
