The Val Air Ballroom, A Historic Theater In Iowa, Is Reopening

by Staff

There is nothing like the rush of live music, and often the venues where these performances take place have as much to do with it as the performers. I think back to my favorite concerts I’ve attended, and it’s a perfect mix of sight and sound. That’s why many people work to ensure these famous theaters stay open and able to host shows – and one historic theater in Iowa has just reopened after a long wait. The Val Air Ballroom is a beloved live music venue in Des Moines that began its life as an outdoor dance venue in the 1940s, later turned into an enclosed music venue. Time wore on, and many people wondered how long it would stay open – but an exhaustive, multi-year renovation effort has not only restored the ballroom, but turned it into a modern music venue capable of hosting over 2,400 people. It looks better than ever, while maintaining its historic vibe, and we’re so excited to see it alive with music again.
