This premier event aims to begin a Kelowna family tradition and annual event to support the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs, and the local community. Anyone can take part in the competition part of our event or you can come to the event to build a gingerbread house for fun. We aim to display some of the amazing and creative talent found in the Okanagan Valley in a display of gingerbread creations.

The Gingerbread House Event supports the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs’ Cool Moves program. Cool Moves promotes physical activity and healthy eating through two components: Eat Smart and Play Cool! Through an array of Eat Smart and Play Cool activities, members will benefit from increased participation in physical activities and skills for making healthy eating choices. As a result of participating in games and activities, participants will also gain cooperation and team building skills as well as confidence and feelings of belonging.
