Gingerbread Village Festival
The goal of the Gingerbread Village Festival is to use a fun event to raise awareness and funding to fight homelessness in Carroll County. This event coincides with National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week which is always the week of Thanksgiving.
Last year, HSP held the first Gingerbread Village Festival fundraiser in partnership with Town Mall of Westminster and Westminster Church of the Brethren. We had over 30 houses enter the competition, and we raffled off a life-sized play house! Together we raised over $8,000 to support HSP’s Shelter & Housing Programs!
What’s New This Year?

Wooden train will be raffled off – Construction on the life-sized wooden train will happen inside Town Mall leading up to the event.
