This December marks the 22nd Annual Gingerbread Wonderland. What started as a small display of gingerbread houses has now become an incredible 10-day exhibit of over 200 edible structures. We’ve seen everything from the Notre Dame Cathedral, grand pianos, Chinese pagodas, and Hanukah menorahs to Santa’s workshop, the Eiffel Tower and the Jersey Shore. Over 15,000 guests kick off their holiday celebrations with a visit to this charming and ecumenical exhibit. Guests, young and old, marvel at the creativity, skill and sense of optimism that characterizes each entry. Groups of 8 or more must make a reservation to visit by calling 973-326-7601.

Two special treats are in store for visitors this year. Each Saturday from 1:00 to 3:00 pm the folks from Sculpted Ice Works will be here demonstrating their ice carving skills outside in the Cottage Garden. Each Sunday, The Hickory Tree Chorus will greet you at the front entrance singing carols from 1:00 to 3:00 pm.
Also, don't forget to attend the Gingerbread Wonderland Craft Show weekends during Gingerbread. Scroll down to the Craft Show entry on December 7th for more information.
While you join us on the weekends, we are happy to announce The Gingerbread Café with sweet and savory selections.
