Finding something to do in the Amana Colonies is no chore. See Iowa’s largest walnut rocker or experience one of our multiple historical museums. We also have many festivals, both large and small, as well as host many niche groups, such as classic car clubs and culinary events. There is always something special to experience in the Amana Colonies throughout the year.

Celebrate our German heritage with Maipole dancers at our spring Maifest or polka the night away with the Burgermeister at Iowa’s original Oktoberfest. Don’t miss our month long holiday celebration featuring Tannenbaum Forest and Prelude to Christmas. Start the New Year off with Winterfest in the Amana Colonies and fully embrace Iowa’s January weather with our outdoor games and many indoor activities. From the machine museum to the 19th century intact communal-era kitchen, the entertainment possibilities are endless in the Amana Colonies.
