Mumbo Jumbo Gumbo Cook-Off and Carnivale Parade

Presented by Historic Manitou Springs at Soda Springs Park

Are you an aspiring gumbo chef or a professional that’s got this nailed down?

Join in the fun at gumbo cook-off and show us what you’ve got! If you are better-suited to snacking, then come taste what our 20 gumbo chefs have cooked up in the park and vote for your favorite. Samples are a mere 75¢ each!

Make sure to stick around after the Cook-Off when Manitou Avenue will fill up with spectators to watch the Mardi-Gras Parade at 1 p.m.

It’s tradition in Manitou Springs to march down Manitou Avenue and celebrate Mardi Gras in true fun and funky color that Manitou is known for! So grab your beads and costume-up with us! The more the merrier, so bring your family, your neighbors, your co workers, your friends, everyone!
