Amana Colonies Festhalle

At the official Amana Colonies Oktoberfest Grounds, enjoy Amana Colonies Meat Shop & Smokehouse brats, along with pork trotters, sides, and desserts. We’ll have live music from bands like Barefoot Becky and the Ivanhoe Dutchmen, Alpensterne, Alte Kameraden, and the Colony Folksingers along with beer – lots of beer. We’ll host games during the day on Saturday between bands, and even our annual brat eating competition.

Admission is $10 for a one-day pass and $15 for a two-day pass. Tickets will go on sale for pre-order in August, so keep an eye out for an announcement!

We’ll post our schedule of live music and games soon.


As we get closer to the event, we will update this page with festival information! Stay tuned for details.
