Free Outdoor Events at DMPA


Relaxation, Fun and Music in Outdoor Venues Around the Des Moines Metro

There’s something for everyone this year in some of Des Moines’ beautiful outdoor venues and parks—and it’s all FREE!

This is an opportunity to experience family-friendly, multi-generational arts and cultural events that can be safely enjoyed together.

We can't wait for you to join us!
