Ankeny Chamber SummerFest: Ready. Set. Play

  • Overview

    The Ankeny Chamber SummerFest 2023 will hit both of the city's central areas after a record-breaking 2022. Organizers with the Ankeny Area Chamber of Commerce announced initial details about the upcoming event, which will take place in the District at Prairie Trail from July 7 - July 9. A record 65,000 people attended the event in 2022 & organizers hope for more in 2023.

    One significant change for this year is that the entertainment section, including live music & bar areas, will be moved to the paved parking lot behind the library, 1250 SW District Drive, with 85,000 square feet of space.

    Ankeny Chamber SummerFest will not just be contained to the District this year, with a family night happening the evening of July 7 in Uptown, including the kiddie parade. The family night will cover the Ankeny Market & Pavilion, 715 W. First Street & surrounding areas.

    For more than 50 years, Ankeny Chamber SummerFest has brought Ankeny & the surrounding metro area together for 3 days of music, carnival rides, great local food & fun! Every year, our committee members, staff & volunteers work hard to bring this festival to life.

    From the Grand Parade to kick start the weekend to the amazing fireworks at the end, there’s something here for everyone to enjoy!
