Gingerbread (or in Norwegian, “pepperkake”) is a staple feature of the Norwegian holiday season. Towns across the country come together to build their own miniature cookie towns, bringing together families, schools, businesses, nursing homes and friends over the holiday season. We want Minnesota to have fun too! Since its launch in 2015, our Gingerbread Wonderland has over 250 structures. You’ll find a few hundred familiar buildings and landmarks created by our community, including structures from professional bakers and gingerbread lovers of all ages and abilities.
