Saturday, December 5, 2020 | Downtown Cary

Visit Downtown Cary as it is transformed into a walking gallery of amateur gingerbread houses. Local participants work hard to design, create, and display a gingerbread house that is yummy enough for an elf's visit!

The houses were on display in Downtown Cary businesses on December 7, 2019. 2019 winners are on display at the Cary Arts Center (101 Dry Ave.) and Honorable Mentions are on display at The Mayton Inn (301 S. Academy St.), both through January 1, 2020.

People's Choice Voting

Visitors had the opportunity to submit a vote for their favorite house on Saturday, December 7, 2019, and the winning house was crowned "People's Choice Winner."
