Mumbo Jumbo Gumbo Cookoff

Soda Springs Park

Feb 22, 2020 11 a.m.
Prices vary

At this Cajun cook-off, Coloradans can taste a New Orleans delicacy—gumbo—without having to travel almost 2,000 miles. Professional chefs and home cooks will have just under three hours to whip up at least five gallons of the seafood dish which they’ll serve up to attendees. Southern food lovers can sample more than 20 different renditions of this rich Louisiana stew, including recipes with filé (powdered leaves of the sassafras tree) or okra. First, second, and third-place prizes will be awarded to both amateurs and professionals in the categories of Best Showmanship and People’s Choice.
