The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center, or AUHCC, is presenting the 2022 edition of the Auburn Gingerbread Village beginning Sunday, Dec. 4, at approximately 3 p.m. immediately following the Auburn Christmas parade. The display will run through New Year’s Day. 

Hot chocolate and cookies will be served at the unveiling.

Adam Keeshan, managing partner of food and beverage, is responsible for the creation of the streetscapes which change each year as the setup is slightly altered to offer a new, fresh take on the existing buildings. Pastry Chef Dallas Key ensures all the gingerbread is affixed to the superstructures that are created by Auburn University College of Architecture, Design and Construction Professor Paul Holley.

Each building is assigned to a team from the hotel to be adorned with their favorite confections and then are judged in a friendly competition by members of Auburn Downtown Merchants and Celebrity judges for which building emerges as the best in show. This year, for the first time, the Tony and Libba Rane Culinary Science Center will have a building.

AUHCC’s chosen charity Storybook Farm has a building that will be on display and will have a QR code for anyone that would like to donate to the charity.

Guests have the opportunity to receive special holiday rates of 20% off the best available rate at the AUHCC or The Laurel Hotel & Spa.
