Calling all broker bakers, decorating developers, candy-land(scape) and ginger-structural engineers! ULI Dallas-Fort Worth is closing out an unforgettable 2020 with something a little less instructive,

but a lot MORE fun!

Join us on December 15th for our first ever Holiday Happy Hour & Gingerbread Showdown.

Bring a pre-constructed gingerbread development, peppermint, gumdrops, and a little moxie to network and engage in some friendly competition with your colleagues and friends.

Or if you’re not into using dessert for décor, we'll have a special place dedicated for tasty creations of the "21 and Up" persuasion. 

Laughter, networking, gingerbread,
cocktails & fun-
is there really a better
way to close out 2020 with ULIDFW?

Interested in winning a custom dessert for 6-8?

$25 Raffle tickets are available to purchase with your registration!

Culinary Institute of America trained Chef Philip Halff of Halff Culinaire will work with you to create a customized, locally sourced dessert for 6-8 people.

All proceeds go to support ULIDFW's local initiatives that give back to our neighborhoods and communities. Programs like Urban Plan, Building Industry Leaders, our Technical Assistance Panels and more are making an IMPACT on Dallas-Fort Worth and the surrounding communities thanks to our Members!


Our Themed Break-Out Rooms Include:


  • Family Fun Is your eye Frozen on icy perfection, or are your little Minions into something a bit more Despicable? If you plan to decorate your structure using Wookie Crumbs (That's no moon!), or your (Mine)crafty creation has a (Robo)block-y persuasion... clearly this is the room for you.

  • Fantasy Pet Palace | You're not one to let them live ruff, because your beloved pet deserves the very best! Towers, terraces, maybe a drawbridge to keep the neighbor’s dog away? We bet you'll create something that is truly the cat's meow. 

  • Cabin Fever Take your imagination to the mountains, and the classic gingerbread cottage to new heights with snowed-in décor, dripping icicles, and marshmallow drifts. (Just watch for gummy bears.)

  • Showstoppers | Are your creations so sensational that even Paul Hollywood would shake your hand? Catch a few episodes of the Great British Baking Show for inspiration, then aim for the truly spectacular. A gingerbread Reunion Tower or 7th Street bridge? All we can say is... Ready? Set? Bake!


  • Cocktails & Confections | Sometimes the evening just calls for something in a glass, with a slice of extra chill. Join Mixologist, Rob Nowak, as he walks you through some classic ginger-based cocktails and chat with like minded spirits. BYOB & required ingredients to be ready for class. (Confections for nibbles are optional.)
