Maifest in the Amana Colonies
The first weekend of May (April 30-May 1, 2016) brings large crowds to the Amana Colonies for our annual celebration of spring. It’s Maifest and that means, warmer weather, a parade, Art in the Barn, a wine/beer/chocolate walk, and great food. It also means the annual performance of our famous Amana Colonies Maipole Dancers. These young ladies dressed in classic German dirndls sing traditional German songs as they gracefully intertwine the ribbons of the Maipole. They perform throughout the weekend and are not to be missed.
What a great way to celebrate spring.
