Spice up your holiday season at Whitaker Center

Start the holidays early with Whitaker Center’s Gingerbread House Competition

Harrisburg, PA—Whitaker Center will be hosting its inaugural Gingerbread House Display and Competition in AMP Lobby beginning November 16 at its Holiday Kick-Off event. Children and adults of all ages are invited to showcase their creativity by entering their own gingerbread house displays in the competition.

Participants can enter individually or register as families so that they not only build gingerbread houses, but lasting memories to help kick-off the holiday season. Houses can be constructed out of any edible materials and must be dropped off, in person, at Whitaker Center in order to be displayed. The Gingerbread Display itself will be free to view and open for the public to enjoy! The first and second place winners in each category of the competition will receive a Giant gift card, graciously provided by Giant.

Registration for the Gingerbread House Competition must be completed by November 5. A $5 donation upon registration will help to offset program expenses and will go directly to Whitaker Center. For more information and competition rules, please visit
