Dysart is a community on the grow.
Our vibrant little city is just a turn off Highway 21, south of Waterloo and north of Belle Plaine. Surrounded by agriculture, our town retains its gentle nostalgia for a time when life was a little slower and everyone was connected by their pride for the home team. The changing seasons still command our calendars when planting and harvesting are the most urgent tasks at hand. It’s a simpler life… a bit slower and quieter than the urban din. But this town is no wallflower. From April through November Dysart is full of fun and festivals, football and fireworks. Follow the signs for a destination full of unique shops featuring artisan wares, clothing, antiques and decor. Take a day to explore with the whole family. Stay for supper. Leave with a smile.
