It’s that time again! Join us at Portsmouth Historical Society as we celebrate this sweet season with the 31st Annual Gingerbread House Contest and Exhibition from November 26 through December 22. Once again, everyone is getting a little sugar as we take the contestant creations to downtown shop windows!
🎵 These are a few of my 603 things 🎶
This year’s theme is our favorite New Hampshire things to go along with our photography exhibition, “NH Now: A Photographic Diary of Life in the Granite State.” So many of you took up the challenge! From your favorite landmarks to your favorite meal, the creative ways in which New Hampshire is represented in cookies and candy is just amazing!
Our community judges are reviewing the entries for technical skill and artistic merit! Ribbons will be awarded at the Vintage Christmas in Portsmouth kickoff party on Friday, December 3, from 5:30pm to 8pm
People’s Choice Awards
Don’t agree with the judges? Grab a ballot in the gallery and vote for the People’s Choice! Ribbons will be awarded mid-December!
