January 30, 2016
Manitou Springs Great Fruitcake Toss
Manitou Springs, Colorado
Memorial Park - 12:00pm – 3:00pm  Cost: One non-perishable food item, which will be donated to Westside Cares Food Bank, is suggested for attendance.  Join local Manitoids to enjoy this old fashioned event of flying those left over fruitcakes! Old fashioned games of tossing fruitcakes, costume competition, libations and a fruitcake bake off!.  This local group brought back the Fruitcake Toss to the heart of Manitou. It all started in 1995 with locals throwing fruitcakes in the park, and 20 years later, we are going old school! Events will be pure feats of strength, and talent (and balance and taste!)
 

March 6, 2016  Cochon555 - Denver, Colorado
Cochon555, the signature culinary competition featuring five chefs cooking five heritage breed pigs in a friendly competition for a cause.  The tour is dedicated to helping Piggy Bank create the first open-source agriculture platform for heritage species while raising global awareness for socially responsible farming. The event unites consumers with local farmers, renowned chefs, prominent winemakers, restaurateurs, craft brewers and distillers in each city for a nose-to-tail culinary showdown celebrating family farms. At each event, 500 guests including notable judges will vote for the best bite amongst 2,000 pounds of awesomeness and the winning chef will be announced the “Princess or Prince of Porc”. On June 18th, the ten regional winners of Cochon555 fly to Aspen/Snowmass to compete at Grand Cochon, a spotlight of 10 chefs, 10 pigs and the best 30 bites from tour. The winner of the grand finale walks away with the crown and title of “2016 King or Queen of Porc”.
