The 3-day Southern California Gingerbread Challenge exhibit features iconic Los Angeles buildings, towering skyscrapers, famous movie buildings, and whimsical structures from the brightest minds of architects, engineers, and construction professionals across the region. They are participating in a fierce team competition, raising funds for local nonprofits. Teams are competing for Tallest Structure, Best Decorated, Best Replica Building, Most Creative Original Structure, “Best in Show,” President’s Choice, and People’s Choice awards. The gingerbread, candy, and icing structures will be built on-site over five hours, after weeks of design, blueprints, and test builds.

Visitors can purchase mini gingerbread kits on-site, then construct their own buildings, and test them at the shake table for earthquake readiness.

Save the date for the 2023 SoCal Gingerbread Challenge happening from November 30 to December 3, 2023! If you and your team are interested to join, please contact us at
