1. Will I be able to come for just the weekend?
You will be able to make reservations at the regular hotel rate. Festival rates will not apply for just the weekend. Regular rates are available by talking to the hotel directly. Iowa Hawkeyes will be playing the weekend during the Feast and all hotels fill up quickly in the area. Prices for game weekends are significantly higher.
2. Are there other places to stay besides the Ramada?
The Ramada is the only hotel giving us festival rates. Other hotels are nearby and can be contacted directly.
3. Are there any kitchenettes available?
The Ramada does not have kitchenettes. Microwaves and refrigerators are available for all rooms.
4. I have special dietary needs, I noticed we are having meals provided, can you tell me more?
We will be having breakfast daily as a group. Several group dinners will be provided as well. These meals will follow our dietary laws. If you have other dietary needs, please contact us through the comment section and we can make known what will be served closer to the date. This year we will be having some gluten-free choices as well.
5. I haven't decided where I am going for the Feast. How long do I have to make my decision?
Currently we have rooms blocked off for our exclusive use and this block will be held until August 31st. After this date, there will no guarantee of available rooms.
6. When will children's activities be provided?
Children's church will be held four mornings during the week: Friday, Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The program runs from 9:15 until 10:15. It is our joy to provide education in a fun atmosphere for any children who willingly wish to participate. Children who may be too young to fully participate in the activities and education on their own are requested to have a parent accompany them.
7. Why Iowa??
This is not a "destination" Feast site unless you have never seen a cornfield before! This is an affordable, family oriented, centralized site with an incredibly welcoming staff. The hotel's willingness to work with us and our experience last year convinced us we were where God wanted us! No, there are no sandy beaches, but there will be plenty of warm smiles and welcoming faces. This will be a Feast for the Feast's sake.....a place to make memories!
