The Biggest Gingerbread Village Yet

Now in its eighth year, the Gingerbread Village by EPICURE is one of Melbourne’s most iconic festive displays. Featuring 560 kilograms of gingerbread, 420 kilograms of royal icing, 185 kilograms of marzipan and around 900 miniature Christmas trees, as well as the first ever international structure – the Osaka Castle from Melbourne’s Japanese sister city, Osaka – this year’s Gingerbread Village promises to be the biggest and best display yet!

This festive season, the Gingerbread Village will be showcased in the Riverside Gallery at Federation Square, with plenty of activities organised for the kids to ensure a fun day out for young and old. EPICURE’S pastry chefs will also be baking and selling delicious treats – the perfect Christmas gifts for friends and family!
