Mumbo Jumbo Gumbo Cook-Off

The  Mumbo Jumbo Gumbo Cook-Off is the best way to experience Mardi-Gras and Cajun cuisine in Manitou! Enjoy samples of gumbo from professional chefs and amateur cooks to help determine who has the best gumbo! Chefs will be competing for their own 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trophies as well as Best showmanship and People’s Choice.

What is Gumbo? Gumbo is a Cajun soup that contains roux and dried sassafras, Okra, seasonings and usually contains a variety of meats such as chicken, seafood, or sausage. Sometimes rice can be found in gumbo as well.

Stop by Soda Springs Park from 10:30am-1:00pm to enjoy samples of gumbo. Two samples of gumbo will be available for $1.00. Judging and public tastings begin at approximately 10:45am.

Stick around after the Cook-Off when Manitou Avenue will fill up with spectators to watch the Mardi-Gras Parade at 1:00pm. Get into the Mardi-Gras spirit and enjoy a Cajun tradition Manitou style on Saturday, February 25th, 2017.

Pikes Peak - America's MountainPikes Peak – America’s Mountain
The most visited mountain in North America! Pikes Peak forms a stunning backdrop for Colorado Springs and the Garden of the Gods. At an altitude of 14,115 feet above sea level, Pikes Peak is the 31st highest peak out of 54 Colorado peaks.

The entrance to the Pikes Peak Highway is conveniently located 15 minutes west of Colorado Springs on Highway 24. The beauty of being so close to the city is that you can spend your time enjoying the mountain instead of getting to the mountains.
