Build gingerbread houses to benefit Hawaii’s keiki

Sponsored by Kama'aina Kids

Get the holiday season started with a delicious tradition: Making a gingerbread house! The Gingerbread Workshop is a benefit by Kama’aina Kids where families can gather to decorate a gingerbread house and enjoy festive holiday activities while shopping from over 100 vendors at the Mele Kalikimaka Marketplace.

Tickets are $40 and include five free admissions to the event as well as a gingerbread house to take home, and materials to decorate it with. Families can also enjoy other free activities, including storytelling, writing letters to Santa, and even meeting Old Saint Nick himself and his pal, Rudolph!

This event will take place at the Mele Kalikimaka Marketplace at the Neal S. Blaisdell Center on Saturday, December 8th and Sunday, December 9th, offering several time slots to participate each day. Reservations are required, so sign up online now!
