Amana Oktoberfest

Amana, IA 52203


The original Oktoberfest was a celebration of Prince Ludwig’s marriage to the Princess Therese in 1810. The citizens of Munich, Germany were invited to participate and enjoy.

Oktoberfest in the Amana Colonies has been celebrated since 1965 and while not as old it certainly is just as fun. One of the longest running festivals in Iowa, it features special events, food, and music all with an authentic German flare.  Exactly what you would expect given our heritage.
