About Us

Uptown Ankeny is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to the preservation, beautification, and promotion of Ankeny’s original neighborhood. We produce low-to-no-cost events with the goal of creating lasting hometown memories for our Ankeny Community. We bring Ankeny back to our agricultural roots through the Uptown Ankeny Farmers’ Market, held every Saturday from mid-May through September each year. Our Uptown Ankeny Association Board of Directors is made up of local professionals dedicated to this mission.
