The Ankeny Area Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the City of Ankeny and the Ankeny Public Schools hosts Ankeny SummerFest. Ankeny SummerFest is an annual, 4-day celebration held the weekend following July 4th.
The Ankeny Area Chamber understands our role to help our members learn, grow and prosper, which is why we host five Membership Luncheons per year. Each luncheon features a speaker who presents on a relevant topic. Additionally, networking is available before each program to help connect our business members.
We took one of our most well-attended and popular events during SummerFest and made it its own event! Become a wine and craft beer connoisseur by sampling a variety of beer, wine and food from local vendors while enjoying music and the company of others! Over 25 Iowa wine and craft beer vendors participate in this highly anticipated event. This annual event held in September is open to chamber members and the general public.
Chamber members and the community are invited to join our Iowa State Senator, Iowa State Representatives and Polk County Supervisor in timely updates. Audience members will have an opportunity to ask questions to our elected officials. Legislative Coffees are held once a month during the legislative session at the Neveln Center on Saturday morning from 9:00 - 11:00am.
Similar to our Legislative Coffees, chamber members and the community are invited to join our elected officials to find out what policies they have been working on while enjoying your favorite pint at Firetrucker Brewery! This event is held at the end of May.
Ankeny Celebrates Education is an invite only, annual event for the Ankeny Area Chamber to thank educators and staff for all of their hard work.
