On the Town
The Davies Amphitheater, situated in the Glenwood Lake Park, offers quality, family entertainment throughout the summer months. The 750-seat facility (which won the 1981 Iowa Architectural Award for design) was left to the people of Glenwood in the estate of the late Mr. Charlie Davies. The Davies Amphitheater management schedules regular evenings of entertainment and the facility is also available for rent by the public. Many area churches have taken advantage of this lovely setting and have held morning services and weddings there.
The newly formed Southwest Iowa Performing Arts and Education Association coordinates regional cultural events. Other venues include the Barton Theatre featuring the Mills Masquers, located in Glenwood.
