Grand Opening of the 2019 Gingerbread Gallery

You’re invited to join us at the grand opening of the 34th annual Gingerbread Gallery to benefit the Erie Canal Museum, scheduled for 5 p.m.-9 p.m. Friday, November 29.

Enjoy cookies and hot cocoa as you view the array of Canal-inspired creations submitted to this yearly holiday exhibit by bakers of all ages. The grand opening also features musical entertainment by Merry Mischief, beginning right after the tree-lighting ceremony in downtown Syracuse’s Clinton Square. Tickets to the Gingerbread Gallery are $2 for children 12 and under, $5 for seniors, $7 for adults, and free for Museum members. Free parking is available in the lot across from the Museum, under routes 81 and 690.

The Gingerbread Gallery started in 1986 as a one-day gingerbread auction. Its popularity has increased over the years, and it is now a six-week-long exhibit featuring more than 30 works by individuals, families, groups and students. Everyone is invited to submit entries to the Gingerbread Gallery. If you are interested in becoming a Gingerbread Gallery baker, you can find the 2019 Rules & Entry Form here.

The deadline to register as a baker is November 1, and entries must be brought to the Museum by 4:30 p.m. November 12. For more information on becoming a Gingerbread baker, email

We look forward to seeing you at the grand opening of this fun holiday exhibit and yearly community tradition!

Remember! We are always looking for Ambassadors to help us welcome visitors to the Gingerbread Gallery. If you are interested in volunteering with us, click here.
