At the Jacksonville Historical Society, we’re making history every day. Our monthly Speakers Series offers in-depth information on surprising and diverse aspects of our city’s past, and our fun Pop Up events are designed to bring attention to the forgotten history buried in our own back yard. Throughout the year, we also lead countless school groups on “insider tours” of our city’s most significant landmarks and events. Why don’t you join us?

2018 Gingerbread Extravaganza Builder’s Workshop
Sep 29 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Calling All Gingerbread Builders!

The Jacksonville Historical Society is holding the 2018 Gingerbread Builder Workshop Saturday, September 29th from 10:00am – 12:00am and the Old St. Andrew’s, 317 A. Philip Randolph Blvd. We highly recommend Builders to attend the workshop but are not required to attend the workshop in order to participate in the event. We are happy that our Gingerbread Builder Veterans E.J. McIntyre and Sara Aicher have agreed to lead this workshop, sharing their tips and tricks to creating a gingerbread entry that will last.

As a reminder, the Gingerbread Builder Permit form submissions are due Thursday, September 27th and the creations are to be delivered to the Old St. Andrews either Monday, November 26, 12:00pm – 4:00pm or Tuesday, November 27, 8:00am – 3:00pm. We hope that those of you who have shown an interest in participating in this event for 2018 have submitted your Builder Permit form and are busy planning your wonderful creations.

Please RSVP for the Builder Workshop with our office at (904) 665-0064 or email gingerbread@jaxhistory.org
