A-May-Zing Days

For seemingly non-stop activities, West Des Moines has it covered with a month-long celebration. The city is home to A-May-Zing Days, which dominates the entire month of May. The festival first took place in 2008 and continues to grow. With many different events such as the Festivale Cinco De Mayo and the Junction Farmers Market, there is something suitable for all ages. The Principal Charity Golf Classic and an art show are also held as part of this festival. With over 100 vendors filling up the streets and local entertainers performing, you will enjoy this unique springtime experience.

Jordan House

For West Des Moines history buffs, the Jordan House and the Bennett School should be on your list of places to visit and learn from. The Jordan house is a restored mansion that once belonged to the founder of Valley Junction. In the late 1800s, the house was used to serve the Underground Railroad and is now home to a museum. The Jordan house is on the National Register of Historic Places. The Bennett School is a reflection of the educational buildings of the past. The one-room schoolhouse has been restored, but retains its original look.
