What started as a small group of gingerbread houses built by community members in 1992 has evolved into one of our most treasured traditions at The Omni Grove Park Inn.
The 27th Annual National Gingerbread House Competition™ will be held on Monday, November 18, 2019 with an Awards Ceremony in the Grand Ballroom. This Awards Ceremony is open to competitors and family members only.
The winning creations will be on display Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - January 4, 2020.
As a means to preserve the overall guest experience, The Omni Grove Park Inn invites guests that are not staying overnight at the resort to view the display after 3:00 pm on Sundays or anytime Monday through Thursday, based on parking availability and excluding holidays and the following dates: November 27, 28, December 23, 24, 25, 29, 30, 31 and January 1, 2020. Public viewing on December 26 will open at 1:00 p.m.
Fridays and Saturdays are reserved exclusively for guests staying overnight at the resort. Display access is subject to hotel capacity, including pedestrian traffic.
Please note that only registered resort pets are permitted on property. No outside pets will be allowed.
Holiday Parking Program:
Since its inception in 2013, we have been honored to contribute over $430,000 to not-for-profit partners in Western North Carolina through our Holiday Parking Program. A minimum $25 parking charge will be in effect for all overnight and drive-on guests (one charge per standard sized vehicle, based on availability). Half of each parking charge collected this holiday season will be returned to the community in support of various local not-for-profits.
