Autumn in the Amanas

8 Themed Weekends that highlight Fall fun in the Colonies

Our very first “Autumn in the Amanas”

For the first time ever, we are proud to present 8 themed weekends that we call “Autumn in the Amanas”.  It’s a series of small weekend events that will allow us to socially distance and have a little fun. These events will begin on September 18th with Apfelfest and go through November 7th for Girls Getaway Weekend.

Here is the line-up for 2021’s Autumn in the Amanas. More details coming soon
