Amana Colonies


The Amana Colonies in Eastern Iowa are host to the Jingle GX Gravel Weekend August 5th, 6th, and 7th, 2022. Step into a world of authentic German ambiance that was created by our ancestors and preserved by the people of Amana today. Experience the unique culture that has its roots in Germany and flourished in the USA during a communal era for over 90 years.   

Visitors have been coming to the scenic seven villages of the Amana Colonies for over a century. Some come for the amazing foods or to sip our wines and beers. Others, for the quality handcrafted products, art, and variety of quaint shops that line our streets. Maybe it’s the ambiance created by the architecture or the numerous festivals that take place in each season. Whatever it is, we’re glad you’re here!

The Jingle GX Gravel weekend will take on the German Oktoberfest theme all weekend with the best in beer, bands, and bikes.
