The Town of Occoquan invites YOU to enter our second annual Gingerbread House Contest! Use your imagination and gingerbread to build anything from a simple cottage to an elaborate historic reproduction.

In-person deliveries:

We are letting the people decide the vote! Judging will take place online via Facebook. The creation with the most “likes” in each category wins.


Traditional Gingerbread: Any structure is allowed in this category, i.e. Victorian, colonial, modern, house, barn, cottage, etc.

Authentic Reproduction of a Structure in Occoquan: Pay tribute to the town and recreate a magical reproduction of a building within Occoquan’s historic district. Your display must include a picture of the real thing.

Gingerbread Creations/Youth: Combine your favorite candy and delicious edibles to design your gingerbread house! Graham crackers are acceptable in this category. (There are no age restrictions in any category, but Gingerbread Creations was designed for the younger set to be able to enter and compete.)
