About Ankeny SummerFest
A tradition of summer fun...

Ankeny's annual summer celebration has been going on for 51 years! SummerFest is a four-day run of carnival rides, parades, music and contests. Thursday through Sunday, July 6-9, 2017, on the grounds near Prairie Ridge Middle School, 1010 Prairie Ridge Drive. Organizers expect more than 10,000 people each day. The theme this year is "HEROES UNITE," which will focus on not only the fictitious super heroes but our local heroes that make a difference in our every-day lives. Whether you're a Baby Boomer, Gen Xer or a Millennial, you're sure to find something to enjoy at SummerFest. See you soon!

A CELEBRATION FOR ALL GENERATIONS!

"SummerFest is a very generational event for Ankeny. After 50 years, you’ve had two or three different generations enjoying the same things or remembering what they did."
