Discover the best of the wurst in Amana, with sausages from area sausage makers, locally brewed beer and wines, and sweet treats and good eats from other local vendors. Want to know more? Enroll in Wurst University and eat your way to the wurst education in Iowa. Have a wiener dog? Bring your little sausage-shaped buddy to compete in the second running of the Dachshund Derby at 3 p.m., and watch dachshunds run as fast as their little legs will go. Humans can enter contests, too, involving eating and beer stein holding. And music will mingle with lip-smacking aromas all day.

Wurst Festival

11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday (6/16), Market Barn area, Amana; $5, free under age 12; Festivalsinamana.com/wurst.html
