A Fall Festival of Water and Light



Illumifest has offered fun for all ages since 2008, and we're making it bigger and better in 2019! Inflatables, games, activities, a variety of food stands, a community art project, a public art reveal, Aladdin on the big screen and fireworks will all make the evening one to remember. Attendees will also get the chance to meet city employees and learn more about how West Des Moines city departments are committed to serving the community. This year's event will also include public art activities that spotlight the importance of water quality in everyday life. We hope you’ll join us at Illumifest 2019, a fall festival of light and water.
