Event Phone: 515.462.1185
Our six 130-year-old covered bridges are one of the main attractions and centerpieces of the Covered Bridge Festival. Guided bus-tours sponsored by the Winterset Rotarians are offered throughout the weekend, with stops at a few of the bridges.

You will also find live demonstrations featuring sheep shearing; glass jewelry making, woodcarving, as well as a cannon demonstration, pony rides and competitions such as an “Old Fashioned Spelling Bee” at the Festival. Along with wonderful artisan booths, local storytellers embody famous persons who relate tales of early Iowa history.
