Gingerbread Competition

I love it when people prove to me that dreams can come true. My fiancé has been dreaming of a Gingerbread House Building Competition for the last 4 years and this year he is making it happen.

Our vision is for this  premier event to begin a Kelowna tradition and annual competition to support the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club and the local community. With the support from local chefs, we aim to display some of the amazing talent found in the Okanagan Valley.

Our event takes place on Sunday, November 21st at Parkinson Recreation Centre in Kelowna, BC. The packaged kit category commences at 10am and at the same time people can start dropping off their open category creations. The public viewing will take place from 5-8pm. See the full schedule…

If you’d like to participate in this event, please visit the Registration page of our site. Sponsorship and donation opportunities are also available. Partial proceeds from this event will be donated to the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs and all of the non-perishable food donations we receive will go towards their Christmas hampers.

All of the information you need to become a sponsor, a participant or a spectator can be found on our website at:

    What an amazing event… great write up.


    • Thank you Dave! We are really excited about it. I’m glad you like my write up. Please feel free to link to it from facebook, twitter etc. The more exposure for our event the better. Oh, I heard it was announced on CHBC Events last night! It’s also in Snap Magazine in their event calendar and it’s going to be in the Daily Courier too. :)
      Is Mitch going to come and build a house in the packaged kit category?
