About Madison County Covered Bridge Festival
Madison County Covered Bridge Festival is held annually at the Courthouse Square in Winterset, Iowa. It is a family-friendly event that offers many attractions, such as live music, food, pancake breakfasts, kids’ activities, commercial vendors, contests, demonstrations, a 5K walk/run, antique tractor rides, and more.
The first Madison County Covered Bridge Festival was held in 1970, started by a group of passionate citizens to celebrate the treasury of history and heritage in Winterset and attract people from all over the country to see, admire, and capture the bridges’ rustic charm. Eventually, the festival grew in size and scope to become an event with a national reputation that draws thousands of people each year. In 2023, the two-day Madison County Covered Bridge Festival will take place on Saturday, October 14 and Sunday, October 15.
