Celebrating our 15th year, Cookies & Castles Dallas is a two-day, volunteer-led Gingerbread Extravaganza bringing together families and friends to decorate nearly 3,000 gingerbread houses and gingerbread men. Participants select delectable and festive decorations from our famous “Candy Bar,” filled with more than 5,000 pounds of sweet treats.
For 14 years, Cookies & Castles has kicked off the holiday season with a weekend full of sweet treats and smiles. After two-years of to-go only events, we are thrilled to invite guests to return to the in-person Gingerbread Extravaganza at Scottish Rite for Children. To-go houses will be available for purchase as well. We hope you will join us for Cookies & Castles this year as we continue to support the patients with limb differences that are served in the in-house Prosthetics Department at Scottish Rite for Children as well as the Tri Delta Foundation.

Take Cookies & Castles home with you!
You can add gingerbread houses or gingerbread men to any registration or if you can’t make the event this year, these kits are perfect to take "Home for the Holidays." Each kit comes with a full-sized gingerbread item of your choice (just like you would get at the event), icing, and an assortment of candy, all packaged in a Cookies & Castles event tote.
These kits are great activity during the holidays when all the family is over, an office celebration, or a decorating night happy hour event with the girls! We have even heard of families doing decorating competitions with the adults - how fun! Whatever way you choose, bringing Cookies & Castles "Home for the Holidays" continues the holiday cheer all season!
If you are unable to make the event and would like to purchase a to-go order only, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Pick up times will be during the event weekend.
