Fayetteville’s Gingerbread Festival

December 3 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Nestled in the picturesque mountains of West Virginia you can step back in time and enjoy Fayetteville’s Gingerbread Festival!


Fayetteville gets all dolled up for the holidays celebrating with authentic small-town flair. Escape the hustle and bustle of the holidays and enjoy a getaway with your family. You can shop small and enjoy strolling around historic downtown as the town is transformed into a candy land with gingerbread decor throughout town. Enjoy the Hansel & Gretel Trail with gingerbread-themed stops through town.

The Festivities kick off on December 3rd with fun lined up throughout the whole weekend. Have breakfast with Santa at Cathedral Café. Enjoy more holiday shopping with the Fayetteville Women’s Club’s Christmas Craft show with over 50 craft vendors. The Fayetteville Arts Coalition will host a Holiday Sampler showcasing the many talented artists calling Fayetteville home. Watch Christmas characters come to life Saturday with Fayetteville’s Christmas Parade. Santa will be riding into town in style with the parade.

Visit Santa and his elves on Saturday and enjoy cookie decorating, a craft, caroling, storytime, face painting, hot cocoa, writing letters to Santa, and much more! We will be hosting our 4th Annual Gingerbread Decorating Contest. Gingerbread entries will be on display for voting during the festival. The Gingerbread contest is open to all ages and all skill levels.

Fayetteville’s Christmas Parade will be Saturday, December 3rd at 5 pm on Maple Ave.
