Each year, Old Town Artisan Studios converts their 3-acre art campus into Gingerbread Lane – a winter wonderland with dazzling displays, trimmed garland, twinkling lights, and a marquee 17-foot tree next to the signature Holiday Cottage! The moment you walk through the gates you will enter a magical world of Gingerbread delights! We offer gingerbread cookies and hot cider in the culinary area, cookie decorating and clay ornament painting in the craft section, and scheduled performances all for you and your loved ones to enjoy at no cost. *The Paint Your Own Pottery studio will be open during the event and is the only fee-based activity.
Our Holiday Cottage is beautifully decorated for families to visit and take photos. All day, activities are scheduled to keep you entertained and in the holiday spirit. Scheduled events include seasonal music, delightful dance, and special performances by local youth organizations from the Coachella Valley.
