Kent will once again be the scene for one of the largest Gingerbread Festivals in Connecticut!  Gingerbread creations will be revealed in participating shops in Kent and in one gallery space that can be viewed from outside for safe social distancing protocols.  Starting November 27th, the town will have the smell of gingerbread and the feel of a New England wonderland!  Sponsored by the Kent Chamber of Commerce, Bain Real Estate, Nicholas Tobin Insurance, Goldspiel Group, Webster Bank, Union Savings Bank, and Heron American Craft Gallery. A big heartfelt thanks to Candi and Rocco Valeri for the use of the space.

Lots of places feature colorful gingerbread houses for the holidays, but Kent, CT goes a step further.  The whole town will take place in this sugary sweet celebration. Everyone is invited to take their picture with festive pop-up photo scenes, view the Gingerbread Gallery and walk through town to enjoy what makes Kent a popular destination for people near and far.  Visitors can enjoy the displays and decipher a creative digital scavenger hunt.  It's always fun to see what the Ginger Girls have cooked up each year.  At the end, we need you to vote for your favorite creations.  Displays are guaranteed to delight all ages!
