Event Website

Presented by St. Clair College Centre for the Arts and the Downtown Windsor BIA. Calling all candy cane architects and gumdrop engineers, the DWBIA’s second-annual House-to-House Combat: Battle of the Gingerbreads is back and sure to be better than ever. Windsor-Essex residents are invited to submit images of their gingerbread house masterpieces to the Windsor Star between December 1 and December 21 for the chance to win Best Gingerbread House in Windsor-Essex.

Entries are evaluated on the following criteria: appearance, originality, creativity, difficulty and consistency of theme. Houses are judged by the community at large, entirely online, until the first, second and third place winners are declared.

All ages are welcome to enter, and three winners will be chosen. The first prize will win a Downtown Windsor gift basket valued at $600; second prize wins a gift basket valued at $400; and the third prize wins a gift basket valued at $200.

Submissions will be accepted until December 7, and images will be featured on the Windsor Star.
