Gingerbread Lane 2021

Each year, Old Town Artisan Studios transforms it’s campus into a magical lane to celebrate the holidays. This event is free and open to the public!  Read on to learn more!

Old Town Artisan Studios will be converting their 3-acre art campus into Gingerbread Lane – a winter wonderland with multiple trees, trimmed garland, twinkling lights, a marquee 17-foot tree next to the Holiday Cottage all wrapped in the music of the holidays! The moment you walk through the gates you’ll enter a winter wonderland of Gingerbread delights! We will be offering gingerbread cookies and hot cider in the culinary area, cookie decorating tables and clay ornament painting.

Each Saturday our Holiday Cottage will be open and beautifully decorated for families to visit and take photos. All day activities are scheduled to keep you entertained and in the holiday spirit. Scheduled events include seasonal music, delightful dance and performances by our local youth organizations in the Coachella Valley.

Gingerbread Lane has been the dream of Founder Victory Grund. “The mission for this new family event is to bring back the joy of giving through the holidays through creating hand made gifts for family and friends. When a person of any age creates a gift by hand for loved ones it becomes a treasure that grows more valuable with each passing year”. Grund went on to say, “The personal expression gives meaning to each piece of art. Creating gifts with a group of family or friends can become a tradition and, though not expensive, these gifts are treasures”.

This magical event will be held on 4 consecutive Saturdays leading up to Christmas. Festivities will be held from 12 to 5 p.m. The event is free to the public.  More information about Gingerbread Lane 2022 will be coming soon!
