Description

Call for Volunteers: Gingerbread Jamboree 2019

Volunteer opportunities for adults and youth (13+) groups!

 

The annual Gingerbread Jamboree presented by Children’s Museum of Tacoma and Greentrike features candy buffets, lots of frosting and gingerbread house decorating.  While houses are being made, so are family memories!  For over 20 years, this event is a holiday tradition for many generations of Puget Sound families. The event is held at the Murano Hotel's Bicentennial Pavilion in downtown Tacoma on November 30 and December 1, 2019.

Volunteer Opportunities

It is that time of year when we are gearing up for the Jamboree--- and we need your help!  Volunteer support of the Jamboree is essential to its success, and we are grateful for the many people who donate their time and talents to make it a weekend filled with playful memories and wonder.
