If you normally spend Memorial Day Weekend in Western Gateway Park at CelebrAsian, it's not cancelled. It's just postponed to October. CelebrAsian is happening this year October 1 & 2. The theme this year is "Silk & Spice." I'm here for it!
Also happening this year is the Des Moines Arts Festival June 25-27. My favorite downtown Western Gateway Park Festival is the World Food & Music Festival. That is happening September 17-19. The Iowa Latino Heritage Festival is September 25th and 26th.
CelebrAsian will probably be back to its regular Memorial Day Weekend dates in 2022.
In the meantime, the Downtown Des Moines Farmer's Market is in full swing Saturdays through October (7am - noon). The City of Des Moines recently created an entertainment district on Friday and Saturday nights that creates more outdoor patio space and music in the streets!
Let's go enjoy life again!!!!!
