The Great Fruitcake Toss

The fruitcakes will fly again in downtown Manitou Springs! Join us for old-fashioned games of tossing fruitcakes, exhibitions, and a fruitcake bake-off! It all started in 1996 with locals throwing fruitcakes in the park, and 27 years later, here we are. Events will be pure feats of strength, talent, balance and taste!

Come on down to the park and visit our Fruitcake Tech Inspect team. They’ll clear your homemade cake for tossing. If you don’t have a cake, you can buy one for $5 at the entry table, which includes 5 tickets to toss. Extra fruitcake toss tickets will be available for $1 each. Or you can bring a canned good with you to receive a ticket as well. 10 tickets max per family for donated cans. All canned goods will be donated to the Manitou Springs Food Pantry.

Tava Food Truck will be across the street with winter warmer drinks and fruitcake toss specials.
