The Fairmont’s 25-Foot Tall Gingerbread House Party | SF

Saturday, November 25, 2017 - All Day | Cost: FREE
The Fairmont (San Francisco) | 950 Mason Street San Francisco, CA

For more than a century, The Fairmont San Francisco has enchanted guests with its joyful holiday festivities and exuberant ambiance. Once again, The Fairmont elves are working overtime this season to create the iconic hotel’s unparalleled interior and exterior holiday décor.

The Fairmont San Francisco’s famous annual gigantic gingerbread house opens on Saturday, November 25th, 2017.

Fairmont San Francisco’s talented culinary and engineering teams have joined forces to meticulously plan construction of this year’s enormous Gingerbread House, which will be even larger than last year’s stunning, two-story-high Victorian.

The impressive, edible abode will stand more than 25 feet high, 35 feet wide and 10 feet deep and will feature more than 10,250 homemade gingerbread bricks, 1,650 pounds of candy and 3,300 pounds of royal icing. The gingerbread house’s railroad track also delights guests of all ages, who happily gaze upon this favorite feature.

Gingerbread Open House
Saturday, November 25, 2017 | 10:30 am to 4 pm
The Fairmont, 950 Mason St., SF

Please note, although The Fairmont’s San Francisco Gingerbread House will be open to the public starting on November 25, 2017, the hotel will not be holding their annual Open House as in years past in order to best accommodate guests and limit crowds on that particular day.

However, on November 25, 2017, the hotel lobby will transform into one of the world’s most beloved holiday destinations, welcoming guests to take photos with Santa that day from 11 am-3 pm.

Refreshments will be available for purchase including at a Moet & Chandon Champagne Bar in the lobby and a Gift and Hot Cocoa Pop-Up Shop in the Garden Room. The Gingerbread House will be up through January 1, 2018.
