Ice Cream Social & Pie Baking Contest

July 1 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Summertime Ice Cream Social & Pie Baking Contest

Here at the Chamber of Commerce, Visitors Bureau, and Office of Economic Development, we know the strain that tourist season has on our residents and businesses (lest we forget the major road construction and road closures both past, present, and future). That is why the Summertime Ice Cream Social and Pie Baking Contest was born, as a thank you to Manitou Springs and West Side Residents, a time to take a breather, enjoy our beautiful city, good friends and neighbors, music, and of course, PIE and ICE CREAM!

Slip back in time to the good old days and enjoy the Summertime Ice Cream Social & Pie Baking Contest. Each year members of the community compete in the pie baking contest and enjoy scoops of homemade ice cream. Cool down from the hot summer day by spending your evening under the Pavilion in Soda Springs Park on Monday, July 1st.

Stick around and enjoy live music at 7:00 pm while sampling pie and ice cream!

The Colorado City Creamery graciously donates the ice cream and Patsy’s of Manitou Springs supplies the ice cream cones. Both the Colorado City Creamery and Patsy’s are local legacies that serve only the highest quality of handcrafted sweet treats. Colorado City Creamery has been around since 1979 and Patsy’s since 1903!

Interested in participating?

Participants compete for first, second, and third places for the best fruit pie as judged by 3 respected individuals. Two pies are supplied by each contest participant and served until there is none left! Judging begins at 5:00 pm. At 5:30 pm, the treats will be sliced and served.
