Growing in popularity with each year, Polk County Conservation and Cumulus Media are proud to bring back Glow Wild for a fourth year to benefit local conservation and outdoor recreation efforts. Glow Wild is a family-friendly weekend event right outside the Des Moines metro area!

Join us for great food, beer and other beverages, and plenty of crafts and activities for both kids and adults. Glow Wild 2019 will be packed with all of the outdoor fun one can handle, tethered hot air balloon rides, our signature towering bonfire, festival camping, horse-drawn wagon rides, and more throughout the evening! Oh, and don’t forget the free s’mores! 

Glow Wild 2019’s headlining band is the Georgia Satellites
with local Des Moines band, Suede, as their opener!
