When you’re in Carlisle, Iowa you’re surrounded by rolling hills, pristine woodlands and the convergence of two rivers. Carlisle is taking the extra steps needed to preserve its natural environment by adopting conservation techniques as it grows. Instead of seeing pavement take over its hillsides, you will see native plants used to absorb rain water, trails used to connect all parts of the community and residents looking for ways to maintain the natural beauty.

Each season in Carlisle brings a variety of events and activities for everyone, young and old. During the fall, enjoy high school football games, church bazaars, bonfires and hay rack rides. October is especially busy with Carlisle’s Trail of Terror which gets your Halloween started off right and Pumpkinfest featuring a costume parade and a downtown adored with Jack-O-Lanterns. Light Up Carlisle lightens the night sky in a beautiful display of holiday cheer, complete with food and a visit by Santa.

Spring and summer are just as busy with monthly lawn mower races held at the River Bottom Raceway, the Community Family Bike Ride and Breakfast in June and the annual 4th of July festival which boasts one of the largest parades and fireworks displays in the area. You can also cool off at the Carlisle Aquatics Center which features a heated pool, 1 meter diving board, drop slide, 11 ft diving area, swim lanes, super sidewinder slide, water cascade umbrella, frog slide, bubbling beach and a water's edge snack bar. 

Visit Carlisle's City website for information on these events and other things happening around town, as well as living and working in this beautiful city.

When you want to get away, Carlisle is a short drive from all of the Des Moines Metro area events and attractions like the Blank Park Zoo, the Iowa Cubs, the Science Center of Iowa, the Des Moines Arts Festival and the Des Moines Farmers Market.  For additional information on events happening around the Des Moines Metro area, check out the Catch Des Moines website.
