The Erie Canal Museum’s annual Gingerbread Gallery started in 1986 as a one-day gingerbread auction.


Its popularity has increased over the years, and it is now a six-week long event featuring over 30 gingerbread creations made by local bakers of all ages! Check out all the amazing and edible works from 10am-5pm each day!

To visit to the Museum is free, but there is a small admission fee for the Gingerbread Gallery.
