Reach Higher. Achieve More.
Marion is one of the Midwest’s fastest growing cities – and one of the youngest per capita. We pride ourselves on being the best place in Iowa to raise a family and grow a business.
Whether you enjoy music in the City Square on a warm summer night, Christmas in the Park in December, the nationally-acclaimed Marion Arts Festival in the spring, or walking the trails on a crisp fall morning, it’s no wonder Marion is named one of the 10 Best Towns for Families by Family Circle Magazine.
Reach Higher. Achieve More. In business and in life.
Unique Sense of Community
As one of the fastest growing communities in the state, Marion is intentional about maintaining its unique sense of community. A variety of festivals and cultural events bring families, friends and neighbors together. Join us for the Marion Arts Festival, ranked one of the nation’s best.
Rich in Arts and Culture
Marion is creating a legacy for the future founded in high-quality, relevant and engaging public spaces. Look no further than the Uptown Artway, featuring nine permanent public art installations in a revitalized alley, or the Klopfenstein Amphitheater at Lowe Park, a functional work of art itself.
