Central Iowa Region 50th Anniversary Car Show at the Amana Colonies

Saturday, June 15, 2019

Central Iowa Region celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2019 with a series of milestone events highlighted by a car show to be held in conjunction with the Amana Wurst Festival on Saturday, June 15.

Pre-registration is required for those wishing to display their Porsches at the Festival. Enrollment is limited. Please email Central Iowa PCA (link to ciapca@windstream.net) to register.

The Wurst Festival (link to https://amanacolonies.com/things-to-do/festivals/wurst-festival/) features German sausage, beer, wine, and lively music. Honoring “all things sausage,” it runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the Amana Colonies.

The Amanas consist of seven villages--Amana, East Amana, High Amana, Middle Amana, South Amana, West Amana, and Homestead—located on 26,000 acres in east-central Iowa.

One of America’s longest-lived communal societies, the Amana Colonies began in 1714 as a religious movement in Germany. Religious persecution led the founders to search for a new home, which first took them to a site near Buffalo, New York, and then (1855) to Iowa’s rich farmland and plentiful supplies of stone, wood, and water.

Today, the Amana Colonies are a National Historic Landmark that attract hundreds of thousands of visitors annually.

The Central Iowa Region was officially incorporated by the PCA on July 22, 1969.
