Kent will be the scene for another month-long Gingerbread Festival! Dozens of gingerbread creations will be set in participating shops in Kent in December. This year's festival will be sponsored by the Kent Chamber of Commerce.
Lots of places featured colorful gingerbread houses for the holidays, but Kent, CT goes a step further. The whole town participates in this sugary sweet celebration. Everyone is invited to follow the Gingerbread Walk through town to view imaginative and ingenious gingerbread delights. Visitors will enjoy the displays as they navigate the Gingerbread Map and solve the new riddle the "Ginger Girls" cooked up this year. Displays will delight visitors of all ages!
The Gingerbread Festival takes place Monday through Sunday from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM from December 1st thru December 31st. Most of the participating shops are open 7 days a week and the shop hours vary but PLEASE NOTE some are closed on Mondays and/or Tuesdays so plan your visit accordingly.
In addition to gingerbread displays, Kent will hold special holiday events every weekend, from the Annual Kent Holiday Champagne Stroll (Nov. 29 & 30), KVFD Stuff-A-Truck, Kent's Tree Lighting and the KVFD Parade of Lights, Pancakes with Santa, and more!. Check back later for more information. Please visit our community calendar for more details.
Hope to see you in December 2019!
