This year we will have 12 houses throughout Kent in various shops and galleries. The festival goes through the month of December, Thursdays thru Sundays.
There will be a riddle and maps available both online and in person at each location. Each house will have a part of a clue or riddle to solve. Find all of the houses, solve the riddle, turn in your map and win a prize!
We offer cash prizes for the gingerbread artists as well.
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.
