Ankeny, Iowa, May 1, 2013. The Ankeny SummerFest Events Committee announced Wednesday that a Community Stage will join the lineup of special events for Ankeny SummerFest.   “In our work with the City of Ankeny, we have a distinct set of goals as we plan ahead for SummerFest over the next few years. One of those goals is to diversify our events. Hosting a Community Stage goes hand in hand with that goal and we are excited to provide this opportunity to the talented performers of our community,” says Todd Wehr, Co-Chair of the SummerFest Events Committee.

The Community Stage will host performers from 1-5 p.m. on Saturday, July 13 and Sunday, July 14 of Ankeny SummerFest at Prairie Ridge Stadium. The event will be free to attend.

Co-Chair Heather Lilienthal states the goal is to have a variety of performers each day. “We welcome performers of all ages to contact us to reserve their time slot. We are looking for singers, dancers and anyone else with a talent to entertain. It truly is an opportunity to showcase a variety of talented individuals and groups,” states Lilienthal.
