The Uptown Ankeny Association organizes several key events annually to promote the interest and development of the Uptown area. These events and activites include Hop Into Uptown, our annual Easter Egg Hunt; the Farmer’s Market runs every Saturday morning from mid May through September and features a Family Fun Day in June.  The Kiddie Parade as part of the Ankeny SummerFest activites is held in July; Fall into Uptown in September; Trick or Treat in Uptown; and our holiday event is the Santa Treasure Hunt.

The Uptown Association holds its monthly meetings the first Thursday of each month at noon. The meetings are held at the Ankeny Area Chamber of Commerce office on S. Ankeny Blvd. The yearly dues are $150 and goes into the Association’s general fund to promote and sponsor events and enhance the Uptown area.
