Announcing our Kids’ Cookie Contest!

Calling all cookie lovin’ kid bakers!

Great American Downtown invites you to share your favorite cookie recipe with us, in our very first NOM NOM NOVEMBER KIDS’ COOKIE CONTEST!

Winners will be chosen, and those recipes will be baked and featured at our downtown bakeries! Imagine your cookies being on sale at Riverwalk Cafe or jajaBelle’s Bakery! Fun!

Winners will have their cookies featured on the menu of those locations, for people to enjoy on National Cookie Day, which is Friday, Dec. 4. The cookies will be prepared by the bakers at the business fresh that day!

You will also receive a special trophy, and be featured on our website and social media!


Send us an email at, with your most delicious cookie recipe, along with a .jpg photo of your finished product.
