5th Annual Gingerbread Wonderland
Posted on: November 18, 2019
Event date: January 05, 2020, 6 p.m.

November 23 - January 5 | Norway House, Minneapolis (map) | $5, members and children under 12 free

Together with families, friends, and neighbors, young and old, Norway House’s annual signature Holiday tradition Gingerbread Wonderland has returned to the Gallery in all of its cinnamon coziness. You’ll recognize familiar buildings and landmarks from the Twin Cities and beyond, created by friends and neighbors—everyone from your favorite local bakeries and cake wizards, to families and first-time gingerbread baking enthusiasts.

GINGERBREAD (or in Norwegian, pepperkake) is a quintessential feature of the Norwegian holiday season. You will find gingerbread cookies, ornaments, and houses everywhere—in offices, stores, homes, and schools. Some towns and cities in Norway even go so far as to build replicas of their own city out of gingerbread! 

Norway House and its warm family, friends, and community members are creating a Gingerbread Wonderland city in their gallery—a tradition they have come to love, and one that will soon be a part of your family’s annual Holiday to-do list, too!
