23rd Annual Great Fruitcake Toss
This one-of-a-kind event, where enthusiasts traveled from all over to compete for trophies and bragging rights, has been a community highlight for 23 years. The great fruitcake toss is the event of the winter season as the hapless dessert is launched into space with a variety of mechanical and pneumatic devices.
Join in some old-fashioned tossing of those maybe-not-so-beloved holiday desserts. There will also be a fruitcake costume competition, libations, and a fruitcake bake-off where local bakers will compete for the title of Fruitcake King or Queen as determined by the community. Winners will be based off who makes the best organic, non-GMO, natural fruitcakes.
Admission: One non-perishable food item is suggested for attendance. All food items will be donated to a Manitou Springs food bank.
