Summer Music in The District Live

  • Overview

    Summer Music in The District live on Thursday Nights!

    With 8 patios in The District, summer is the place to enjoy outside dining. This year, we will be adding live acoustical music on Thursday evenings starting July 23 through mid-October. Choose a patio and enjoy the musicians stationed nearby. We’ll have 2-3 musicians spread throughout The District every Thursday evening from 5:30 – 8:30pm

    If you can't make it on Thursdays, be sure to join us for Sips & Songs on Fridays! Sips & Songs is a free weekly summer community celebration of music. It features performances by bands of varying genres in the Town Square park in The District at 1500 SW Main Street, in Ankeny! Grab a chair or blanket & come enjoy these family friendly Friday night kick-offs to the weekend alongside your friends & neighbors. NOTE: There will be music & drinks, but no food vendors this year. Please visit one of our 8 restaurants in The District for takeout & enjoy it in the park!
