Welcome to The Avenues of Ingersoll & Grand!

The avenues

There's something for everyone on The Avenues!

The Avenues of Ingersoll and Grand is a district rich with historic character, art, independent businesses, a vibrant dining scene, and family-oriented offerings. The Avenues reflect the esteem of the area, which includes anchor institutions such as the Des Moines Art Center, Des Moines University and Terrace Hill plus over 200 businesses and seven neighborhood organizations. The Avenues of Ingersoll & Grand stretches from 15th Street to 43rd Street and south of Grand to Water Works Park to the edge of I-235 on the north is the district housing.

A signature event of The Avenues is "Ingersoll Live," an annual street festival held on the last Saturday of August meant to bring together all that is wonderful about this district. The day begins with “Run the Avenues” and continues from the late afternoon into the evening including 2 stages with bands and entertainment, food trucks, vendors, business booths, and an exciting kids area with bounce houses and games.
