The Salem-Roanoke County Chamber of Commerce Foundation (a 501(c) 3 organization) will host the Gingerbread Festival Saturday, December 5th at Longwood Park in Salem. The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Arts and craft vendors will be on hand, along with a variety of food vendors and live entertainment on stage. There will be an arts and craft activity for children to participate in. A nice cozy fire for marshmallow roasting will keep everyone warm. Gingerbread houses will be on display inside the carriage house during the event and festival goers are encouraged to vote for their favorites, which will determine the Best in Show winner. The houses on display will also be on silent auction, which will determine category winners, and will be awarded to the highest bidders.
The event is hosted by the Salem-Roanoke County Chamber of Commerce Foundation with members of the Chamber bringing a holiday kickoff event to the community.
