Celebrating our 16th 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 15 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.
