Madison County

Those who live in Madison County and the surrounding area know its charms well, but most everyone else has at least some awareness of this beautiful country because of ‘The Bridges of Madison County’, the movie starring Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood. If you haven’t experienced the covered bridges, the John Wayne Birthplace and Museum, the Quilt Museum, or just the scenery around the picturesque town of Winterset, perhaps this year’s Hinterland will be your chance to explore.

Whether you stop by on your way to or from the festival, many of the sights of Madison County are just twelve miles away from the festival site. And of course, the Avenue of the Saints itself is a perfect place to appreciate the views.
