United Way of Salt Lake and Ivory Homes are excited to present the Holiday Gingerbread Festival!  Gingerbread houses will be on display during the Showcase event, December 14th-17th from 3:00 – 10:00 P.M. in the Grand Hall at the Gateway Mall.

Start the holiday season off with this fun downtown event!

·      Vote for your favorite gingerbread house entry
·      Get your family photo with Santa
·      Enjoy festive holiday entertainment

All proceeds from this event will support United Way of Salt Lake Neighborhood Centers. Admission is $5.00 for adults and $2.50 for children, or print out the family pass below for a $10 entry fee for a family of up to five.

Volunteers are needed to help each night at the Gateway during the Showcase event. Opportunities include:

  • Santa’s Helpers: assist with family and kid photos with Santa
  • Ticket Takers: help sell and take tickets at the entry
  • House Guard: keep the Gingerbread Houses safe from little ones wanting to touch them and eat the candy!

For volunteer information, please contact Emilie Davis, at or 801.736.7768.

We can’t wait to see you there!
