If you’re traveling for a foodie event, check with the organizers to be certain it’s still scheduled. It’s probably been canceled, and you should be “sheltering in place” anyway.

Gingerbread in Wonderland

Submitted by on December 3, 2020 – 7:50 amNo Comment

Gingerbread, Springfield, MassachusettsThe annual Gingerbread exhibit at the Springfield Museums, 21 Edwards Street, Springfield, Massachusetts — Gingerbread in Wonderland — is open now through January 3, 2021.

The exhibit includes thirty-seven gingerbread creations — many of which are inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and many with a traditional holiday theme — constructed by local bakeries, schools, adults, and kids. “For more than a decade the Museums have exhibited confections of great ingenuity, with each year improving on the last,” said Larissa Murray, coordinator of the exhibit.

Especially this year, a year that has been filled with uncertainty and change, staff, led by exhibit designer Sarah Gogal, wanted to offer an unforgettable experience. “Our staff has created a whimsical tea party in a fully immersive world of wonder that emphasizes coziness and a pleasing sense of belonging,” Murray said. To help visitors feel at ease, the Museums have limited capacity to 25%, all visitors and staff must wear masks, and all must stay socially distanced from all except those in their party.

“During the pandemic, when we are all facing changes that are not at all easy and cancellations of so many gatherings, it is great to have the foundation of a much looked-forward-to event,” Murray said. “This exhibit is all about looking, wondering, and being inspired.”

Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, plus 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
