Gingerbread City 2023 is calling all makers and bakers! Get those ovens ready because the TSA’s fourth annual Gingerbread City is back for another year of delicious structures and edible creations! This community building event brings together architects, designers, and gingerbread lovers alike to create whimsical and unique edible creations that inspire and delight.
Gingerbread City will be a hybrid program again this year, with both a virtual showcase on their website and a small in-person display at the Maker Bean Café (1052 Bloor St W). Whether you’re an individual submission or a team, Gingerbread City is open to all and free to enter, sothey invite everyone to participate in this year’s festivities!
For In-Person Display Submissions:
Please register here prior to December 4 so TSA can plan for the exhibit! They have limited space for this in-person display, so submissions will be approved on a first-come, first-serve basis, and you will receive confirmation from the TSA Team if your submission is able to be displayed in-person. These submissions will need to be dropped off on Dec. 12 between 9:00 AM and 7:00 PM at Maker Bean Café (1052 Bloor St W). If you are unable to drop off your gingerbread structure on that day, please let TSA know by emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would also like your creation featured in our virtual showcase, in addition to in-person, please follow the below instructions.
Registration is required by December 4 if you wish to display in the storefront, and all digital submissions are required by December 12.
For Digital Submissions
No pre-registration is required – TSA will just need some photos for the showcase! Please submit by December 12, 2023, the below deliverables:
- A completed Submission Form
- A description of your creation
- Up to 5 images (a mix of vertical and horizontal formats works best)
- Optional: Want to send something extra special? Your submissions can include up to two bonus elements. So whether it be a video, flythrough, architectural plans, instructions on how to replicate them or a whimsical collage, get creative!
