Madison Autumn Festival
uncovering the history of
the covered bridges

Every year since 1970, on the second weekend in October, Madison County, Iowa, pays tribute to its famous covered bridges with an autumn festival. Take guided tours of the bridges to learn about their history, or watch artisans carve soap, shear sheep, and whittle wood. Enjoy lots of live entertainment, including bands, gymnasts, barbershop quartets, and square dancers, along with plenty of crafts, cider, and corn dogs. Antique car enthusiasts can admire hundreds of beautifully restored classic cars and trucks at the auto show on Sunday morning, and then watch the Antique Vehicle Parade that afternoon, featuring tractors, horses, and floats as well.
