During the 2017 Madison County Covered Bridge Festival, we will have continuous entertainment on two stages: the Mel Penrod Stage on the south side of the Winterset Courthouse steps, and the Benge Family Stage on the northwest corner of the festival grounds. Entertainment will include local musicians, an old fashioned spelling bee, dancers, a Civil War fashion show, crowning of the 2017 Festival King & Queen, and more. As soon as we have a preliminary schedule to share, you’ll find it right here.
