Annual Gingerbread Festival

Join in the 26th year of the Gingerbread Festival at Waelderhaus! 

 

Beginning November 27 and through December 30st, Waelderhaus, the historic “house in the woods” in Kohler will host the 26th Annual Gingerbread Festival. Dozens of sugary creations will be on display and weekends feature holiday music.

 

To make reservations to view and vote for the gingerbread creations, please sign up HERE.

Enjoy extended hours and weekly musical performances, and vote on favorite hand-crafted gingerbread houses, sculptures and original handiworks created by local schools and community groups.

Classroom and community organizations whose creations garner the most votes will receive cash prizes. Complimentary gingerbread cookies are offered to protect the candy-studded homes and fabrications from hungry visitors.

Daily tours of the Waelderhaus are offered at 2:00PM, 3:00PM, and 4:00PM (closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day). Group tours are available by appointment.
