Registration Now Open For Grove Park Inn Gingerbread Contest
There is something magical about Christmas in Asheville. And one of the things that makes the season so special is the National Gingerbread House Competition at the Omni Grove Park Inn. The competition, which is the largest of its kind in the world, brings together bakers of all ages and skill levels to create one-of-a-kind gingerbread masterpieces. And registration for the 31st Annual National Gingerbread House Competition™ registration is open now through November 13, 2023. The official competition will be held on November 20, 2023. Then beginning on November 27, 2023, and lasting through January 2, 2023 guests of the hotel will be able to view the entries as part of the official Gingerbread display.
You don’t have to be a guest staying at the hotel to view the display. Though if you have a chance to stay there I highly recommend it! There is a minimal charge to park, but in the spirit of the season from October through December, The Omni Grove Park Inn donates a portion of its parking proceeds to the community in support of local nonprofit organizations in Buncombe County, North Carolina.
“Gingerbread is a truly magical time here at The Omni Grove Park Inn,” said Isabel Miller, Senior Marketing and Events Manager in a press release. “From the competitors who have been competing for years to those participating for the first time to each visitor who comes from far and wide to experience the gingerbread cheer, the competition has become an iconic holiday tradition for all.”
The official rules and entry form have now been released on the hotel’s website www.OmniHotels.com/Gingerbread, including information on the competition, specialty awards, prizes, and more.
