Save the date for the 2023 SoCal Gingerbread Challenge
happening November 30 through December 3, 2023!
Nothing brings people passionate about structural engineering, friendly competition, and holiday spirit together like the annual Gingerbread Challenge.
The Southern California Gingerbread Challenge features tasty-looking replicas of iconic Los Angeles locales, towering skyscrapers, famous movie sets, and whimsical creations from the region’s brightest minds of architects, engineers, and construction professionals. The gingerbread, candy, and icing structures will be built on-site over five hours—after weeks of design, blueprints, and test builds—and then displayed for three days to members of the public who will vote for their favorites.
Teams compete for Tallest Structure, Best Decorated, Best Replica Building, Most Creative Original Structure, “Best in Show,” President’s Choice, and People’s Choice awards. These creative minds are participating in a fierce team competition and raising funds for local nonprofits while they’re at it!
Visitors can purchase mini gingerbread kits on-site. Construct your very own gingerbread building and test them at the shake table for earthquake readiness! There will also be food, games, and other activities for the whole family to enjoy.
If you have a team interested in joining, don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
