Family Gingerbread House Decorating Workshops

December 14th in Montrose.   December 15th in Ouray.

Buckets of candy, oodles of frosting, sticky fingers, heaps of smiles, and a kajillion sugar-coated photo ops. That just about sums up Weehawken Creative Arts' annual gingerbread house decorating event, offered for over a decade every December to families from all over the region in Ouray. We have are expanded our services to Montrose with a Gingerbread House event in Montrose!   For over thirteen years, Weehawken has presented the "Annual Gingerbread House Decorating Workshops" and this fun, memorable family event serves over 60 families and is a wonderful holiday tradition.

Families must reserve a house in advance ($15 each) and will arrive to either The Montrose Field House (Weehawken Montrose) on December 15 OR the Ouray Community Center on December 16th to find a fully assembled house that just needs the magic of imagination and decoration. Once families check-in, they peruse surreal tables of candy and goodies that can be added to the structures with oodles of frosting. As a team, families decorate their house and then get to take the house home for enjoyment during the holiday season. Additional donations are gladly accepted and appreciated for this program as it runs well over $1500 to provide the service to participants.

The 2019 workshops will be in both Montrose and Ouray.   The event will run 12:00-1:30 pm in Montrose and from 1:00-2:30 pm in Ouray. Check-in begins 15 minutes prior to event start, and closes 15 minutes after event start time.
