Folkstore Holiday Showcase

November 9 - December 31
Support local artists and makers this season by doing your holiday shopping at The North Country Folkstore! This special showcase is a temporary expansion of the Folkstore during the holiday season and features a wide variety of additional merchandise in The TAUNY Center’s first floor gallery space.



Sugar & Spice Gingerbread Contest

and Display

Through December 22


Stop by The TAUNY Center to see the Sugar & Spice Gingerbread Contest and Display and vote for your favorite gingerbread creation! The theme for this year’s competition is a reprisal of a popular theme from the past with an additional layer -- “Myths and Fairy Tales.”

Sugar & Spice entries must be made of gingerbread baked from scratch and be entirely edible. Entries are accepted and prizes awarded in four categories: adult (ages 18+), youth (12-17 with no adult help), children (under 12 with minimal adult help), and family/youth/community group.

The People's Choice Award Winner will be announced later this month.


The 2018 Sugar & Spice contest and display and the Holiday Open House are supported by underwriting from Stewart’s Shops with additional support from Nature's Storehouse.
