This is a great event! The 2017 theme for Ankeny’s annual SummerFest celebration. The theme, Heroes Unite, pays a special tribute to our known heroes (Police, Fire, EMT/Medical, Educators, etc.) while reminding the entire community that everyone can be a hero in their own way.
SummerFest is the annual four-day community celebration, the largest in the metro area, from Thursday, July 6, at 5 PM through Sunday, July 9. Traditional highlights include a carnival, grand parade, kiddie parade, Cardboard Boat Regatta, "Miss 16" Contest, Sunday Family Fun Day, an Entertainment Garden with live music each night and a firework finale on Sunday evening. New this year: Ankeny Can Dance!
