3rd Annual Gingerbread Contest Display

November 26 @ 8:00 am - December 20 @ 5:00 pm
Downtown New Bern New Bern, NC 28560 United States + Google Map

For the past two years, gingerbread houses scattered in windows throughout the downtown area have delighted the shopping crowds. Displays made by all kinds of folks from children’s groups to professional bakers have enlivened the holiday season and added to the Beary Merry fun. The New Bern Historical Society is pleased to do it again this year. Everyone is invited to make their own gingerbread creation and enter it in the contest. Don’t delay, the deadline to enter is November 11, 2019. Completed houses will be displayed at selected downtown merchants November 26-December 20. There will be four categories for contestants: Youth (up to 14), Adults, (age 15 and up), Family (a combination of Youth and Adults) and Professionals (bakers, chefs, caterers, cooks, professional engineers, artists etc.) People can enter as a group, or as an individual. There will be cash prizes up to $150 and all who enter will receive a hand-crafted pottery ornament. In addition to an award in each category, there will be a $200 prize to the entry that best reflects the “Historic New Bern Christmas” theme. That award, the Nancy Chiles Heritage Award, is named in honor of long time Board member and Gingerbread supporter, Nancy Chiles. There is also a People’s Choice Award. The public will be asked to vote on their favorite, and the prize will go to the entry with the most public support. The deadline to enter is November 11th. Information and entry forms are found at GingerbreadNewBern.com.

This famed North Carolina tradition returns to Tryon Palace in 2019 with beautiful, new decorations and heartwarming holiday vignettes illuminated by the magical glow of candlelight. Experience the beauty, joy, and magic of the holidays as the women of Tryon Palace welcome you into their home for “Christmas Belles: A Candlelight Christmas Celebration.” As you walk through the Governor’s Palace and historic homes you will meet a century of New Bern’s women who carried the evolving traditions of English and American culture through the colonial period, into a blossoming nation, and through the Civil War. Meet the brave women who were comfortable with themselves and with power, who took aspects of their own future into their hands, and who supported each other and future generations through difficult times. Join Tryon Palace for its 39th year with decorations inspired by an 18th-century fascination with the East and traditional 19th-century Christmas décor. Visit with historic characters in period clothing, witness holiday vignettes spanning two centuries, and cap off your evening with a dazzling black powder firework display on the Palace South Lawn. Food will be available to purchase from food trucks located outside the Palace gates. You can then stop by The Plucked Peacock Tavern to grab a seat and enjoy beer, wine, and delicious baked goods in a festive holiday setting. Also, warm up with hot cider and cookies from Mack’s Cider House in the Trades Building. Don't forget to end your enchanted evening with a show of black powder fireworks on...
