Seattle Holiday Events - Gingerbread Village
One of Seattle’s most beloved holiday traditions, the Gingerbread Village, brings Nursery Rhymes to life this holiday season. Humpty Dumpty, Old Woman in the Shoe and London Bridge is Falling Down will be depicted in larger than life fashion. Local architecture firms and trade associations team up with Sheraton’s culinary team and together donate more than 400 hours of experience to design, bake, and build the gingerbread masterpieces. This year, six architecture firms – DLR Group, MulvannyG2 Architecture, Callison Architects, Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties, 4D Architects and Weber Thompson – are teaming up with the Sheraton’s culinary team to present six Nursey Rhyme-inspired castles; all to benefit JDRF.
The 21st Annual Gingerbread Village will be displayed in Sheraton Seattle’s lobby from November 26, 2013 to January 1, 2014, and visitors will have the chance to vote for their favorite display throughout the duration of the exhibit. The event is free to the public, but donations to the Northwest Chapter of the JDRF are encouraged and appreciated. The Gingerbread Village has raised more than $670,000 for JDRF in the past 21 years and welcomes about 100,000 visitors annually.
