Bundle Up for Amana’s Winterfest

See ice sculptors in action, chain saws and all, during Amana’s Winterfest on Jan. 21.

Embrace winter in Amana with engaging indoor and outdoor activities during Winterfest on Jan. 21. Anchored in the Market Barn in the main Amana colony, the festival includes various competitive events like a ham toss, wreath toss, best beard contest and the Freezer 5K fun run.

Otherwise, if you’d rather sip your fun, buy a $5 punch card to sample beer and wine at each brewery and winery in town. If you complete your card, you’ll get a souvenir wine glass. For food
, grab a bowl of Fire Chili from the Amana Fire Department or try the five-course meal with wine pairings at the Ox Yoke Inn’s Wine and Dine event.

While you’re in town, check out the local shops and book an overnight stay at the Hotel Millwright.
