The 2022 Cookie Walk has been canceled

Photo from 2019 by Stacie Joy

Organizers have decided not to host a Cookie Walk again this year at St. Nicholas of Myra Orthodox Church on Avenue A and 10th Street. 

The Cookie Walk website shows that this year's event, expected to occur early next month, has been canceled.

"Our hearts are broken to make this announcement," per the site...
There wasn't an official reason given for the cancellation of what would have been the 12th Cookie Walk.
We will wait until 2023 when we can all enjoy the excitement and fun of "walking The Walk" together once again.

Be well. Stay safe. Eat Cookies!
The always-festive event, held in early December in the church basement, offers about 75 varieties of homemade cookies and pastries. As the name implies, you take a walk around cookie-filled tables and pick your favorites. 

The last Cookie Walk took place in 2019.

There won't be a Cookie Walk this Christmas

Organizers have decided not to host a Cookie Walk again this year at St. Nicholas of Myra Orthodox Church on Avenue A and 10th Street. 

Although there wasn't an official reason given for the cancellation, concerns over COVID-19 certainly played a role in this decision. According to an Instagram post from Friday:
After careful consideration, we have come to the unfortunate decision that we must cancel this year’s St. Nicholas Cookie Walk. We hope to be back next year, better than ever. Please have a safe and enjoyable holiday season. Merry Christmas.

Last year's Cookie Walk, which would have the 12th annual, was also canceled due to the pandemic.

Concerns over COVID-19 prompt cancellation of the annual Cookie Walk

Likely not a surprise, but disappointing nonetheless: Organizers have cancelled what would have been the 12th Annual Cookie Walk at St. Nicholas of Myra Orthodox Church on Avenue A and 10th Street.

According to an Instagram post from Saturday:
It is with heavy hearts that we have officially cancelled this year’s St. Nicholas Cookie Walk. The safety of our guests, bakers and workers is our top priority. We hope to see you all in December 2021.

Walk on: Holiday cookies await at St. Nicholas of Myra Orthodox Church



The 11th Annual Cookie Walk is set for this this weekend — Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday, noon to 3 p.m. — at St. Nicholas of Myra Orthodox Church on Avenue A and 10th Street.

And here's how it works via the Church's website:

Our Cookie Team bakes over 70,000 holiday confections — about 75 varieties. What makes the Cookie Walk unique is that you are in charge. You “take a walk” around tables ladened with cookies and hand-pick your favorites to fill an empty box. There are two sizes of boxes to fill: $20 & $35.



The Cookie Walk also has an Instagram account to get you in the Cookie Walk mood...

For those about to Cookie Walk



In case you didn't see the signage up at St. Nicholas of Myra Orthodox Church on Avenue A at East 10th Street ... the 7th annual Cookie Walk is happening here next weekend...



Dec. 12 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Dec. 13 from noon to 3 p.m.

Head over to the official site for more details. But basically:

This is not your average church bake sale!
Let us transport you back in time.
As you enter the Cookie Walk, you will be greeted with the smell of baking cookies made from only the best ingredients. We have been baking non-stop for days so that tens of thousands of fresh baked cookies await you. There is nothing hi-tech here - just holiday goodness and old-fashioned fun.

Take a walk through our Cookie Wonderland and fill a box with your favorites from over fifty varieties of homemade confections. There are two sizes of boxes: $15 & $25 plus special Gluten Free options at our yummy Hot Chocolate Bar! And, the hot chocolate - no mix here - a secret recipe that is hand-stirred for a half hour and topped with marshmallows, whipped cream or both!

After the last cookie is packed, be sure to visit Tinseltown a holiday gift market for everyone on your list.

Perfect for young families! At our Little Elves Bakery & Workshop, children 10 and under can create their own sweet masterpiece to take home – no charge except to have FUN! Santa will also visit through the day for pictures at our awesome Photo Booth.

Let's hope that the wrong Santa doesn't show up on the 12th...
