Events in Winnebago & Worth Counties

Winnebago & Worth Counties offer a wide variety of events throughout the year and attractions to visit including historical museums and points of interest. Entertainment and recreational opportunities abound, such as theaters, bowling alleys, breweries and tap houses, aquatic centers, 9 hole and 18 hole golf courses, and of course Diamond Jo Casino.

If you’re into nature and hunting, this is the place for you! With miles of trails, multiple campgrounds, and acres of wildlife areas and parks, you can bag that trophy buck or turkey and also take a break at a picnic table for lunch. If being on the water is more to your liking, there are multiple rivers and lakes for fishing and canoeing/kayaking, and boating.

With many choices for lodging and dining, you will be happy with a burger or a wood-fired grilled pizza before sleeping soundly in your rental cabin or hotel/motel room. There are also a variety of local shopping opportunities that will provide you with unique locally made or Iowa made products.
