We Are Back At It Again!

Join B. Gallant Homes for the 5th Anniversary of our  annual B. Gingerbread Homes in support of the Nanaimo Salvation Army.

This is an amazing event that brings together the business community to spread holiday cheer and provide support to the vulnerable in our community who face barriers to housing. We need YOUR support to make the 2019 event bigger, better and more delicious than last year!

We are looking for Building Teams to enter the gingerbread house building competition, for sponsors and for volunteers. Please see the details below on each unique opportunity. 


Seeking Building Teams!

Join the magic by entering Nanaimo’s gingerbread house building competition. This is a fun and festive way to spend time with your team this holiday season, get your company name out there and maybe even win some great prizes!  Our building teams are the center of attention for four weeks at Gingerbread Village, downtown Nanaimo. Visitors can vote on their favourite and a panel of expert judges decide the winners. 


We make participating easy. When you register you will receive:

  • 6 slabs or gingerbread
  • 2 containers of royal icing
  • Tips and tricks from the expert builders and B. Gallant Homes! 


This year we are hoping to have 3 categories!  (all dependant on community participation.)

  1. Amateur Business – for all local business NOT in the culinary field
  2. Amateur Individual – for anyone without a business who loves Gingerbread!
  3. Professional – this is for businesses and professionals -cooks, bakers and artists alike.  You know who you are 😉

For all the details on entering a Building Team, please contact us at gingerbread@bgallanthomes.com.

B. Gingerbread Homes began as a small fundraiser for the Salvation Army. The B. Gallant Homes Team wanted to give back to the people who have been our clients, partners and community over 20 years of business by supporting housing initiatives that shelter the most vulnerable.
