Frequently Asked Questions
How are the displays priced for sale?
Our Committee Chair along with the Festival's CEO will decide on sale prices for the displays. We understand that the sale prices in no way reflect the incredible number of hours designers spend on making their creations. However, we price these to sell to the general public and to provide families with an opportunity to own a masterpiece gingerbread display at a reasonable price.
All funds raised in the sales of Gingerbread displays support health projects and equipment at Saskatoon City Hospital.
Can I use glue, cardboard or other non-edible materials in my display?
No. All Gingerbread displays must be constructed with edible materials. The exception is lighting, which is permitted.
My display includes lights. Is that okay?
Yes, lighting is allowed. Please ensure you have fresh batteries along with spares for our volunteers to replace them as needed. Lighting effects must be explained to the volunteers at Gingerbread Lane on drop off day so they can manage the lights throughout the week.
What happens to displays that aren't sold?
Each year the Festival identifies charitable groups that will receive unsold displays as a gift from us.
