Join the thousands of visitors that come each year to marvel at the skill and creativity displayed at this charming exhibit featuring hundreds of awe-inspiring, edible, gingerbread creations. Explore the sweet, candy-filled room, and choose your favorite design.

Past masterpieces include Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Santa’s Workshop, Hanukah Menorahs, Notre Dame Cathedral, a grand piano, and even the White House.

“For feel-good, holiday fun, Gingerbread Wonderland is a must-see for all ages,” said Jenny Gaus-Myers, Superintendent of Environmental Education at the Morris County Park Commission. “In addition to the exhibit, be sure to stop by the holiday Craft Show on Saturdays and Sundays, and check out a wide selection of beautiful and affordable handmade gifts created by local artists and crafters.”
