GLEN BURNIE, MD - The second-annual Glen Burnie Gingerbread Festival returns this weekend to Marley Station Mall.

The profits benefit a chronically ill 12-year-old only identified as Addyson. She has been in and out of the hospital since birth.

Addyson has epilepsy, mitochondrial disease, periodic fever syndrome, hearing loss, pectus excavatum, aortic dilation and autonomic dysfunction. She has had 17 sedated procedures, including one last month to repair her chest wall and improve her cardiac compression.

"She's strong and determined and doesn't let any of this stop her," the festival said in a Facebook post with photos of Addyson. "When she's not battling medical situations she can be found on the softball field."

Gingerbread festival profits will go toward Addyson's treatment.

The festival is free to attend, but attendees can pay to vote for their favorite gingerbread house, participate in the auction or buy a gift from the merchandise stand.

There will also be crafters, sweets and a Gingerbread Man scavenger hunt.

The festival will be open on:

  • Friday, Dec. 1 (5 p.m. to 8 p.m.)
  • Saturday, Dec. 2 (10 a.m. to 8 p.m.)
  • Sunday, Dec. 3 (Noon to 5 p.m.)

Attendees can learn more by visiting or this calendar event. Supporters can follow the festival on Facebook.

Marley Station Mall also has a train garden fundraising for the Emmanuel Lutheran Church Food Pantry and Emergency Fund until Jan. 7, 2024. Click here for more details.
