Kent will once again be the scene for one of the largest Gingerbread Festivals in Connecticut! Gingerbread creations will be set up in two spaces (Kent Town Center, 27 North Main Street and 5 Bridge Street, Kent, CT) and a few individual shops. The town will have the smell of gingerbread and the feel of a New England wonderland!
This year’s festival is sponsored by the Kent Chamber of Commerce, Bain Real Estate, Chestnut Woodworking & Antique Flooring, Club Getaway, Foreign Cargo, Heron American Craft Gallery, Kent Greenhouse & Gardens, Kent Land Trust, Kent Station Pharmacy, Kent Wine & Spirit, Marvelwood School, St. Andrew's Church, The John Finn Casey Family, the Hempel Family and Brady Construction.
