AACTFest 2025

June 25-28 in Des Moines, Iowa
America's national community theatre festival

AACTFest 2025 posterAACTFest 2025 is set for June 25-28, 2025, in Des Moines, Iowa, at the historic Hoyt Sherman Place Theater [photo]. The Official AACTFest Festival Hotel & Festival Headquarters is the Des Moines Marriott Downtown.

Des Moines’s vibrant downtown and arts and culture scene provides plenty of opportunities for sightseeing and exploration. And with four miles of climate-controlled skywalks, the forecast calls for fun, no matter the weather. Downtown is only minutes away from the Des Moines International Airport, serving the fastest growing metro in the Midwest. And the city is in easy driving distance from most areas of the Midwest.

In addition to a week of theatre, workshops, and networking, you’ll have full access to a walkable downtown, the historic East Village neighborhood, Farmer’s Market, bubbling breweries, and great nightlife. Once you’re there, the question shifts from “What is there to do in Des Moines” to “How do I fit it all in?”

AACT is excited to host the national festival in such a culturally vibrant and charming city. We look forward to seeing you in Des Moines!

See National Festival menu for more details. Additional information will be added on a regular basis.
