Take a Bite

A festival for foodies

Friday April 16 – Sunday, April 18, 2021

“Take a Bite” is an award winning 3-day food experience that features sampling, hands-on activities and events, and special dinners.  Voted the Outstanding new event by the Iowa Tourism Commission in 2019, this food festival features special dining experiences like the Vintners Dinner at the Ox Yoke that pairs a specially selected menu with expertly selected wines, a special dinner menu at the Ronneburg Restaurant, a special Take & Make virtual cooking class from the Amana Meat Shop & Smokehouse, a special Foraging & Harvesting class at Hotel Millwright, and pizza and live music on the Electric Thread Social Club patio.

You’ll be able to participate in our town-wide Sampling Stroll, an activity that requires a passport from the Amana Visitors Center. Buy your passport for $2 and visit 6 specific food and drink beverages for samples. Complete your passport and return it to the Visitors Center – the first 175 to complete and return theirs will receive a free logo pilsner glass!

Take a Bite will broaden your food experience in an entertaining way. We have shopping specials, food & drink specials, samples and tastings, and so much more to create a wonderful weekend full of food fun! Find more details on the brochure, linked to the right of this page.
