Ankeny is sprinkled with cultural venues close to home. Ankeny is proud of the existing Uptown Ankeny featuring many businesses as the hometown flavor of the community. An Ankeny Farmers Market and Ankeny Market Pavilion add local merchants and shoppers a local flair. Lovers of fine art can stop by the Ankeny Art Center and view one of its rotating art exhibits, participate in one of its beginner’s art classes or purchase some pieces for their homes at an art auction. Cinema buffs can see first-run movies at the Springwood 9 Theatre. The Kirkendall Public Library newly offers 3,000 audio books and over 93,000 books and other materials. In addition, the library holds events like the annual Ankeny Cultural Festival which highlights world cultures with food, dance, displays and crafts. The Ankeny Historical Society has a house and museum both rich with heritage from the early settlers in Ankeny.
