Gingerbread Haus Spectacular!

A holiday event for the whole family

Davis House Child Advocacy Center is excited to introduce a new holiday event for the community called Gingerbread Haus Spectacular! Our hope is for this event to grow throughout the years to become a beloved annual family tradition while raising awareness and funds for the organization. The inaugural event will take place during the month of December 2020, and plans will include many precautions to maintain the health and safety of our community.

Davis House will host a gingerbread house competition amongst professional bakers and will award the Top 4 applicants with a prize package, which will include the display of each of their houses at The Harpeth in downtown Franklin. The community will have the opportunity to view the houses on display at the hotel and will be able to bid in a silent auction to win the finalist gingerbread houses! The winners of the silent auctions will display their winning gingerbread houses at the location of their choice!

Local celebrity chefs and bakers will vote to determine the Grand Prize gingerbread house winner. The judges include Summer Deepe of Summer's Sweet Shoppe, Nate Clingman of The Bearded Baker, and Devin Walline, Executive Chef of 1799 Kitchen & Cocktails Restaurant at the Harpeth in downtown Franklin.

The community will also have the opportunity to purchase their own gingerbread house kits to make at home. Davis House will host a safe and festive drive-thru pickup event on Saturday, December 19 at the Davis House Franklin location. The option for delivery on a select number of kits (within 15 miles from the Davis House Franklin location) will also be available.

The event will raise much needed funds for the Davis House through sponsorships from our community partners, silent auction of FINALIST gingerbread houses and the sale of the Gingerbread Home Holiday Kits.
