Chamber to host Fort Watauga Gingerbread Contest
Published 11:20 am Wednesday, November 16, 2022
The Elizabethton/Carter County Chamber of Commerce is once again hosting a gingerbread building contest and invites the community to submit their holiday creations. This year the theme for bakers to use as inspiration is “Fort Watauga at Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park.” Entrants should use this theme to create their own interpretation of our iconic fort.
With a $10 entry fee, youth, amateurs, and professional bakers are all welcome to submit their creations and be in the running for cash prizes in each category. At $25, corporate entries will also be accepted and placed on display. All entries will be made of at least 85% edible confections and displayed on a cookie sheet no larger than 9×13.
Fort Watauga gingerbread creations must be on display at the Elizabethton Chamber by Saturday, Nov. 26, at 5 p.m. Bakers are welcome to drop them oﬀ anytime before then,
Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. til 5 p.m. To register online or ﬁnd more information, visit gingerbreadcontest22.eventbrite.com or call the chamber at 423-547-3850.
This community event is sponsored by Carter County Bank.
