The Polk City Chamber of Commerce is proud to be involved in fostering business growth in Polk City, Iowa and improving the quality of life in the northern Polk County region. Monthly membership meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month at 11:00 am at various locations in Polk City.
In its lifetime of promoting area business, our Chamber has seen and encouraged Polk City's growth from a small secluded town, incorporated in 1875, to a thriving growing business community. Our Chamber is working hard to find new ways to improve the business climate in our community and establish Polk City as a thriving economy in the North Polk and Greater Des Moines area. By joining the Chamber, you are investing in a successful growing future for Polk City.
Polk City was incorporated in 1875 and was given the name Polk City after the eleventh President, James Knox Polk. In 1883 the original bandstand was built in the Town Square. The bandstand was refurbished over one hundred years later and is used today as a focal point for many community events as well as for our logo.
