The Amana Colonies are known for their Festivals

So many German Festivals throughout the year. New ones keep popping up, but these are the regulars.

In case you are confused, or not sure about when the festivals are, I've outlined them in the video and here in this blog.

The Biggies:

Winterfest - January 20, 2024

Maifest - First weekend in May to celebrate the arrival of spring

Wurstfest - June 15-16 - Father's Day weekend. Our newest festival that celebrates all things 'wurst'/sausage

Oktoberfest - First weekend in October

Prelude to Christmas - First Weekend in December. A beautifully decorated time to celebrate the holidays.

The Smaller Ones:

Romance Weekend  - Mid-February to celebrate Valentine's Day

Take A Bite - a food festival sometime in April

Colonies in Bloom  - last day of June and last day of July - a time to showcase the beautiful flower gardens in the Colonies.

Apfelfest - mid-September

Girls' Getaway Weekend - First weekend in November

Come experience what these satisfied travelers are talking about in the review they wrote recently:

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Die Heimat Country Inn! Marc & June could not have been more friendly! We felt right at home from the moment we checked in. Our room was spotless and the breakfasts were so delicious! Highly recommend, and looking forward to returning in the future!"
