Ankeny Unplugged

Reported by Lindsay Fullington

I know, I know. Ankeny isn’t technically Des Moines, but it’s a short 20 minute drive (faster if you’re a speeder), and this summer music series features some of the best local bands in the area. Here are the details for this awesome way to spend your Saturday nights.

When: Saturdays in June. From June 2-June 23. Gates open at 4pm and music goes from 5-9pm.

Where: Wagner Park, 401 West 1st Street, Ankeny, Iowa

Tickets: $3 at the gate

Food and drink: While you can’t bring in your own food and drink, there will be some available. And if you bring in your own mug, you can even get a local craft beer for the same price as a pre-packaged one!


June 2: Parlours, Death Ships, Hanwell, Milk and Eggs, and a special tribute to soldiers by Dustin Smith & The Sunday Silos

June 9: Caroline Smith, Arynn, The Sudden Lovelys, The Host Country

June 16: Fierce Bad Rabbit, The Brothers Burn Mountains, Mint, James Biehn
