Each year, the Festival adopts a different holiday theme and hundreds of talented local designers transform the Orr Building on the Illinois State Fairgrounds into a winter wonderland of ornate trees, wreaths and displays.
The nine-day event features more than 300 designed items; a centerpiece and gingerbread structure silent auction; an elaborate hand-crafted Gingerbread Village; the Candy Cane Express Train; the Little Elves' Workshop craft area; Snapshots with Santa; a toy shop; a sock skating rink; hand-decorated gingerbread cookies; and entertainment featuring dozens of musical performances.
